      Ok, I guess I should have actually pushed preflop acording to the rules, but I didn't feel like spending that much on a low pair, I rather call the small raise and see a cheap flop. Am I right?

      And well, with that flop was my push ok as a protection bet? Or anyway any flushdraw probably wouldn't have folded (its nl10), and a prot. bet doesnt make sense and I just should have beted 2/3 of the pot as a value bet??

      I think you should push pre-flop. You won't get so many opponents who can hit a huge variety of draws and pairs on flop and your pocket 8s will have good pre-flop equity against most callers.

      So, this protection bet you mentioned should have been pre-flop, not on flop imo.

      By pushing you get either this:
      1) Everyone folds and you pickup the dead money and that's what you mostly want with Pocket Eights
      2) 1 opponent calls you and you flip against him in +EV mode or own him with his pocket fives or something or A5o
      3) More opponent trap or nag you w/e but this happens <10% so you shouldnt be worried about Scenario 3.

      So that's why I push here instead of checking it, you lose opportunity here :)

      Best regards,
