      Should I 3B OOP with 88 or just play for set value?
      What should I do on this flop having 3B? Is CBet mandatory here on a low board?
      Once I C/R is it an easy fold after he reraised?

      I didnt see when I was playing but his fold to 3B is 83% (75/90). Would this stat have changed anything the way we should have played post flop?

      I wouldn´t 3-bet UTG open, since very often you´re isolating yourself against better hands.
      I think b/f or maybe bet/shove is better option than c/r and then you have to play for stacks
      Just your hand isn´t strong enough to beat likely TT+/AJ+/KQ, some suited connectors range if you c/r and get showed, but at the same time you can´t really fold, since he can sometimes have 78s or shoving himself value 77
      So I´d prefer keeping aggression and now if he raises can decide if I want to shove depends how much I´d expect him to bluff that board
      Fold to 3b % is not that important here.
