      I know this was terrible play.. But i just didn't know what line to take because i didn't think the jack had hit him, becaus he had been playing tight so didn't put J8 in his range.

      Hi,


      I'd probably bet slightly less on both flop and turn but I like the bets overall.

      On the river it's very hard to say without a read on villain, some players will perceive that card as good for them with whatever 7x they have and pay off, others will just fold anything 88 beats to a bet anyway. I think checking to see if he wants to bluff at it with stuff like 5x/8x is okay, if he makes it cheap on us we can bluff-catch. I don't really mind your blockbet either, 7x can definitely call for that price.

      When he raises tho, do you think a tight player takes a line like call flop call turn minraise river with stuff that 88 beats :p? Just fold at that point.


      Hope it helps.

      Yeah i know it was a really bad call on the river, i just felt i put so much in and was on tilt from a couple of hands before so i just payed him off.
