      Re-stealing with 88+, AJ+ is standard. Though I think it's important to bear in mind that

      1 - stealers from CO are generally tighter than BU and SB.
      2 - you should re-steal slightly tighter from earlier positions: BU<SB<BB, since more players are left to act behind you.

      I think folding 88 wouldn't be such a bad idea here, since the situation speaks for a tighter re-stealing range, so you could use 99+, AQ+, unless you have better info on your opponent.

      Hi Tampa

      IN general this is standard and I like it.
      Though you should think about dynamics. is CO stealing previous orbits a lot ? Did he played any hand? etc.etc.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
