      BB reraised 3 times preflop and bet 2/3 on wet board, you had overpair + str8 draw + backdoor flush draw.

      BB represented a huge hand from his action, probably an overpair. I am not too sure if 88 is ahead on flop against that range but surely you had a gr8 draw, so I would have just called his flop bet.

      Retrospectively speaking, it is unlikely for BB to be bluffing. Besides, it is hard for overpair to continue to value bet with such wet board, a call might actually look strong here.

      Hi.

      Raising can never be too bad cos u have around 40% equity vs stronger overpairs but i think u are better off calling. Raising just isolates u vs his stronger holdings.

      Thanks.
