      A bit of a loose call preflop :D
      On the flop its a slight favorite vs overpair without spade , slight underdog vs overpair with spade , or a better 8 or a higher flushdraw , 30% underdog vs 33/77. I would reraise as well to get fold equity , to stack him easier if i hit my outs and to take the free card on turn if i dont hit. I would also call an all in since its mostly a coinflip vs his range and already 25% of the stack is invested in the pot.
      Did you play that hand? If so , are you gonna ask yourself to evaluate it as well ? :D

      Yes, I played that hand. And I didn't know if it was the correct play. That's why I ask my members. I'm still learning the game like you do. :D

      Good luck at the tables!

      preflop looks good
      flop is tricky and i think just flat calling the flop is an option. We are not a huge favorite when we get called or pushed into but can easily call and this line will be +ev.
      However we dont really have to protect that much and will sometimes be able to catch a second barrel on the turn or take a free rivercard.
      So i guess both lines have value and are probably pretty close.

      I like Puschkin's line. Calling preflop is fine as long as he is not too nitty.

      Raising the flop is a 50:50 shot against all overpairs and we might also get it allin against some weaker drawing hands. He has almost never a hand that has huge equity against our Hand.

      Turn is an easy decision, just stack his aces ;)

      I would have liked to stack his aces. He showed A8o and I sucked out on the river :D
