      Opponent is 21/21 small sample

      Is 3betting him (and going for stacks) here a good idea?

      On flop I think I'm ahead, but don't want to be c/raised

      On turn I have to value bet any draws

      Not sure about river play, should I have even value bet here? Of course I would fold to a raise. Am I missing obv value here by checking down?

      Hi trzewia,

      Preflop: looks fine. Without info I wouldn't go broke with 88 vs a 40 bB stack. It's a bit too loose

      Postflop: As played I would bet the flop since we have no reason to believe we will get ck/raised.
