      Check raising on that kind of draw heavy board is just suicide. As played I guess there is no other way to go than to stick it all in.

      About preflop I am just folding 88 from utg, except if table is really really tight but than u are better off raising it.

      thank you, on a board like that i can already assume somebody has a straight or a very big draw right?

      Hi,


      Just raise it up preflop 88 isn't that hard to play postflop. Just try and represent any big card that comes with a c-bet and when you make a set you get to cooler set mining regs that called with 22-77 or slowplayed premiums.

      As played on the flop it's your call, if you think people behind you are likely to bet even tho it's an awful board then check/raising is fine, otherwise just lead/jam. Can't really fold at any point, even if somebody has a made straight we can still boat up by the river and big draws as well as hands like JT will play it the same in SB's shoes. Only way we're really in trouble is if we get set-over-set'd.


      Hope it helps.
