      Hi anduke,

      I would lead out on the turn for 0.10 because the only hands likely to bet that you beat are bottom end straight. If you bet they can call/raise a bottom end straight and you are likely to get more value in the longrun.

      As played, although 89o is likely to be in his range, i would still raise/ go all in because it is they can still pay you off with worse hands ie. Overpairs, sets.

      Reraise to 1$ after his 0.35 min reraise.



      ps. nice to see you switched to SH :)

      I would isolate preflop with A8s. CO's open limp is too weak.

      I would also lead out on the turn for $0,10 and then just call a raise. It is a freeplay situation and I do not want to go broke for 100BB since after you re-raise, only 89 or 8x will likely call you which means that you are either splitting or you are behind.
