    It's a little big here but as he love opening pots and 3betting etc. it seems like a fine shove. How loose was he playing?

        Hi Sean,

        I think both flat calling and set mining as well as 3bet shoving are profitable here.

        I put a 21% raising range and an 8% calling range into ICMizer on this spot and it says you'll make 80,000 chips on average jamming here.

        For set mining you only need to put in 30k chips and he has a decent stack left behind. But 88 has a bit more show down value so you don't just want to take set value from this hand.

        So I think I would shove as well.

        Other thing to think about is your table image. If you were to set-mine and fold on majority of flops you would look like a bit of a weak passive player. 3betting here gives you a more aggressive big stack image. People won't want to try stealing from you as often and they will show up lighter when you shove next time, which is better for us in the long run.
