Hyper Turbo's?

Re-raise and shove, put others off the pot if you can, you want a heads up if you can.

88 works well heads up to push and not call but in a multi way pot it's no good.

Hope you got lucky.

Hi JulekFantom, is this a play money ring game hand or a tournament?

I think it's a playmoney cashgame, George, based on the stacksizes and the blinds being so low.

Hi Julek,

Playing a 40bb stack I would shove preflop. It's only a nominal amount over the opener's 25x raise so you won't get folds, but in play money games V2 will be opening like this with a range of hands 88 plays fine against... a lot of flips vs 2 overcards, some under pairs and some single overcards like A6s.

As played, fold the river and save your last 13. There's no chance your 8's are good with 4 diamonds on a paired board, and 3 opponents.
