      Wow dude, reread basic strategy articles! 88 is a FOLD to a raise in front! Really, don't take it as an insult, but if you made this play you really haven't understood the basic articles yet.

      i do have a partial read on the guy at UTG2 and the other one and i know that they raise almost anything thats why i re-raised. fortunately that was before i got and installed elephant and PT3... :(

      thanks for the advise.

      I suggest you just stick to the basic strategy for now. When you will hit gold membership at PS.com you will get the article about adjusting your reraise ranges according to PFR of the opponets.

      I totally agree with this, altough you can see the chart without being gold but here without stats I just fold.

      And if you look at the chart, 88 is not even on the chart against an early position raise so do the easy thing and fold.
