      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 8, 8.
      Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, BB raises to $1.20, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      i thought that his raise was really strong. should i have called? i was not sure if i could stack him on the flop.

      hi, if you had stats on him, a player that is really tight, low 3bet, you could always call down as he probably has big pocket pairs or AK, and this give you high implied pot odds. being IP also increase your probability of stacking him.
      against a whale or a person on tilt, you may want to consider 4 betting and going broke.

      otherwise, anything else other than having the sufficient implied pot odds, you may want to fold.

      if player is nit you can call for set value
      if player is aggressive you can also call and hope you get somehow to showdown
