      First of all, please note that I wasn't using the stats during the game.

      So here's what I thought.

      Considering minraises as limps, I had 3 limpers in this hand.
      Standard bet would be 0,70. But I figured that if I got reraised I'd go all in and of I just got called, I'd c-bet all in.

      88 is not such a nice hand on the flop.. so I figured I'd increase their fold equity by just shoving it at once.
      Is that an alright play when I've got marginal hands?

      Looking at Mp1 stacksize alone, I think he is rather bad so I would have shoved this one as you have to RR 5x which is 50% of your stack.

      88 is a preflop hand and you want to be headsup with it Preflop before going to the Flop otherwise you lose Value as in -EV. Well shoved.
