      i didnt think you should 3-bet your 88 in BB
      and with no stats i have bet the flop. just play straight forward on nl50.
      you will often get some money from pockets

      I like this play.
      I dont give min-raisers any respect either, not at low limits, or without stats. So here I would raise 6x BB + 2xBB per limper... or $4.00 and then push flop. 3 or more gimps and I simply push pre flop. Lots of times you get called with Ace rag, smaller PP or 2 overs and in some cases, 2 unders :D . Has been +EV on NL25 and even 66 was +EV on NL10 I look at the hands and it was rare to face 2 overs, and even then you suck out 1 in 5.

      when 3-betting with Eights/Sevens or KQ, I tend to reraise 4x a clickraise. especially when you are out of position.

      Or you can play it passively and just call for 4:1 odds.

      Flopplay: It is ok to give Villain a free card. I should have done the same.
      Leading out is also OK but then you have fold equity you dont want.

      very nice hand imo

      preflop is absolutely standard after this minraise and on the flop you can very well slowplay because there is nothing you have to protect against

      just make sure you get all in until the river

      furthermore it is NOT obvious to your opponent that you have a monster because you could as well have overcards only
