      CO will sometimes call with overcards, some gutshot or a lower pocket pair. BB likely has nothing most of the time. C-betting is fine, your hand isn't very strong, you don't mind taking it down right there.

      When you get called tho, i don't like betting again without a better read on CO. You're turning 88 into a complete bluff, which is only fine if you know he peels the flop very light but you can make him fold a lot of stuff on the turn. I'd prefer either check/calling or check/folding, depending on how often i think he's floating the flop and his level of aggression when you give up the initiative by checking to him.

      As played on the turn you can't do anything but fold.

      Hope it helps.
