    Hi adikumar2010! Preflop, since the stacks are deep enough, I'm going to call and hope to hit a set of 8's. When the flop contains only one overcard, I will try to make a play and take the pot down here and make a standard 1/2 pot value bet. Being in the blind, I could have any of these cards on the board, so I can easily try to represent having a ten. If I check to the opp, I'm not going to be able to call a bet, as their range is ahead of me and I will not be getting the correct odds to try to draw an 8 and will then need to fold. As played, on the turn, I once again, either need to lead or check/fold. I do not want to check/call as I'm not giving myself a chance to win the hand. If the opp raises my bet, then I can easily fold. If they call, then I won't put another chip into the pot unless I improve. The key in this hand for me is to lead for value, as the opp could have two overcards (or a higher pair) and if they have a better hand, then I will quickly find out and be able to cut my losses. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

          Yeah. I need to take the lead in the hand either on the flop or turn... preferably the flop because there are too many turn cards that can show that will make the opp's range be a sizable favorite, as he has a large number of overcards to my 88 in his range.

            The other thing to consider is the range that the opp is putting me on.

            Big pairs are out, because I didn't 3-bet pre. Then, if I check the flop, they're going to rule out having a ten.

            Then on the turn or river, unless there is a high card that I can be floating with... I really can't represent a credible hand... so the only things I can have are a low pair or a bluff.
