      One thing that came to my mind that if he had anything he would bet the flop because another club would would give me the flush.

      But going All In was so stupid :O

      Hey Dante,

      88 is not a playable hand from MP, its only a raiseable hand from LP/Blinds so you should have folded and saved the money for a better hand.

      Hi Dante63s,

      Losing with Aces, happens, it happens roughly 1 out of 5 times (20%) :) Therefore you should not put emotion into your game.

      As played, 88s is not a playable hand on middle position. Therefore I suggest you fold.

      As played, shove the flop because you have a FD and you should shove when you have to invest >50% of your stack if you are heads-up

      best regards,
      Gerv
