      You can fold pre-flop.

      As played nothing you can do, its just a cooler.

      I agree, why would you play 88 in a 3bet pot anyway buddy... you'd have to fold often if you miss. :P Folding preflop would probably be best.

      As played, like Dragar said, it happens and is just a cooler. NH, unlucky.

      I call the 3-bet for set value, 20x raise rule.

      Calling the 3bet pf is fine if you think that you can stack him. (Using the call20 rule for example) Due take in mind that if he is a thinking player he isn't stacked off easily with tp,op hands and also it's always harder to extract value OOP. (which are good arguments to fold pf)
      As played:

      Flop: again, you can bet more, cause if he calls a 2.1$ bet with tp he will also call 2.4$. It might look not so important , only 0.3$ difference, but this 0.3$ helps you building the pot and extract more money on later streets.

      Turn: His range is wide here(can be overplaying worser hands like 2pair,A :club: x).I'm going broke on the turn too. (we got the third nuts,only 2 hands beat us)
      It's a cooler, you played well.

      The call 20 rule is flawed.

      Read an article from 2+2 about this a while ago. To sum it up we do not have the implied odds we need because we can only stack him in a perfect situation if we hit our set + we goto factor in the coolers like in this hand.

      I will find the article and post the link later on.
