      Got any read that he shoves preflop very lose? Seen him show some very weak hand down that he shoved preflop? If you don't have a read on him being lose at showing, I don't like shipping 88 here. It's completely readbased, so it's up to you to decide wheither you have enough reads or not to go with your 88.

      he may lose but I think 88 is not big enough to reraise and then all-in

      I'm fliping high percentage of the time which justify the call.(even with out an exact read) Don't you think?

      No the thing is these preflop stats don't give any indication of how willing he is to 4bet all in. There can be fish who play like 75/50 but they will still only shove premium hands. You just need a read that he's loosely shoving too.
