      Hi,


      I'd raise preflop A8s is good enough, they both look weak/tight, they'll limp/call just to fold on most flops enough for you to show a profit.

      As played i'd raise the turn a tad bigger to $0.85. River valuebet is fine. If he shoves we're reluctantly calling, we get good odds, his line doesn't make much sense altogether and he could do that with worse two pairs sometimes, maybe busted draws if he's nuts.


      Hope it helps.
