      MP: 110.58 BB (VPIP: 100.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 1)
      Hero (CO): 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 8:heart: 8:diamond:

      fold, MP raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (10.5 BB, 3 players) 7:diamond: 8:spade: 2:diamond:
      MP checks, Hero checks, BTN bets 7.76 BB, MP calls 7.76 BB, Hero raises to 22 BB, BTN raises to 48.5 BB and is all-in, MP raises to 75 BB, Hero raises to 97 BB and is all-in, MP calls 22 BB

      Turn: (253 BB, 3 players) 9:spade:

      River: (253 BB, 3 players) A:heart:

      MP shows A:diamond: K:diamond: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 45%, Flop 27%, Turn 17%)
      Hero shows 8:heart: 8:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Eights) (Pre 37%, Flop 73%, Turn 83%)
      BTN shows 7:club: 8:club: (Two Pair, Eights and Sevens) (Pre 18%, Flop 0%, Turn 0%)
      Hero wins 248 BB

      I almost always bet in this situation, but BU has cbet 100%, and bet when checked to 100%, so I let him bet.
      Is it still better to bet, because he has only 250 hands, and I dont have info about his bet 3way? Is my raise flop too small?

      Hi M,

      MP would cbet if he has a strong hand imo so he usually has some mediocre hand or air. If you bet you can look like just stealing the pot but when BU bets IP 100% so far I like the check as well. Your flop raise vs the 2 callers is big enough imo, prob 25bb a bit better, lets BU shove often and then MP has to decide for all his stack anyway. If both call, you can shove the turn as well so that's good.
