      i'd check preflop. why did you raise?

      as played preflop i like your play on flop and turn.

      If you raise preflop OOP you can add an extra BB to your raise size.

      I think you will find it easier sticking to standard starting hands chart for the moment and not ISO-ing A8s in this spot preflop.

      Postflop; nh.

      Preflop you are OOP and the limper is not that extremely loose. You will get in tough spots that way since when you hit you will never sure that you have the best hand because of kicker problems and when you hit your flush. You also have a stack a little larger than normal which makes postflop OOP play a little harder.

      Play this hand passively preflop.

      Hey Tampaloeres81,

      check preflop. Isolating villains with high showdown value can lead you to very marginal situations if you deviate from standard chart, even AJ and AQ is sometimes hard to play postflop OOP.
      As played, nice hand postflop.
