      Im not sure about raising 88 from MP3 here even with deadmoney, if you look at the seemingly loose BB (7 hands samplesize but played 4 out of them, looks fishy already). I think you can only do this with good stats telling you that the blinds will fold.

      cbet flop 3,25$ fold to a raise or c/f when he calls you are nearly drawing dead when he has something on the flop no need to loose the hole stack.

      Isn't c-betting with 1,17x potsize stack without a push against the ToS of SSS? :rolleyes:

      And as far as I know c-betting when checked to you against one opponent is a must...

      So, I would like to ask if adopting your play when you don't hit like in this hand is ok?

      Interesting thought burek but this situation is either Way Behind or Way Ahead with Pocket Eights. With 3 overcards on the Flop, you are most likely to be way behind therefore you rather can save your money but still bet something to let some weak PPs fold.

      A c-bet here is a must, but surely not for your whole stack with pocket eights ;)

      I hope this makes sense,

      Mhm, I think I'm slowly getting it, you can adopt your raise size to way ahead/way behind boards, I hope I got this right, but i think it'll be more clear to me when I hit Gold membership... :evil:

      Thank you for reviewing the post again.
