      Even though my kicker is not so good, I gotta be ready to shove it right?
      I mean, there are 7 worse kickers and 4 better ones. And he'll very likely go broke with any of those kickers.

      What about my line on the turn? Can I check/3bet? Was my shove too much? Should I have instead just reraised to something like 4,50?

      i'd try to get a cheap showdown with that kicker rather than shoving. judge?

      There's actually 6 worse kickers and 5 better ones now that I think about it. 85 beats me obviously :P

      So it's pretty close. And it's probably unlikely that he limped with something like 82 or 83, although there are people who do it.

      So the cheap showdown might be a good idea. But still, I think I gotta be ready to go broke, he might even call me with a K I think

      Without reads that villain likes to go broke with TP or set with no kicker, i'm not going broke here.

      i guess if we call the turn we're almost commited. still i'd try for the cheap showdown.
      judge: can we call the turn and c/f river?

      @tipper1719 - Thats kinda way too tight.
      There arent many better 8s in his range, only reasonable hands to limp are 87,89,A8s.
      I'd bet turn myself, and call a shove ofc.

      I also play it more deceptive. I wouldn*'t be happy to get it in as you did. I c/c flop. If noone bets I bet the turn, call a raise. and c/c the river.
