      - Rush 2 / 5 (4 tabling)
      - 88 in middle position
      - my read was a small pair that hit trips
      - I don't think I had enough outs to call

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Howdy,

      Use auto top up option to 100BB when playing BSS.

      I think folding is best option. He may have sets, combo draws, draws+overs, overpairs and against this whole range you are not doing good enough. I do not like calling even tho you get good odds because you are OOP and you will have tough decisions in this situation on later streets on many turn/river cards.

      Good luck!
