      88 is kind of close. I don't mind betting once and just trying to take the pot down but I think checking and giving up with 88 is fine too. You beat a bunch of worse pairs and also if he just decides to play his unpaired hands passively. With a hand like 22, I would be more inclined to turn it into a bluff cos you can fold out more stronger hands like 33-99.
