What would you do? #28

Villain is a 20/15/2.4 / 71% cbet / 49% attempt to steal @ 214 hands.

I'm not sure whether I stepped in this & had it coming to me, but check it out:

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players -
The Official Hand History Converter

CO: $51.95
Hero (BTN): $56.30
SB: $56.50
BB: $63.35
UTG: $53.45
UTG+1: $40.00
MP1: $59.45
MP2: $12.75

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with 9d 8d
4 folds, CO raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, 2 folds, CO calls $3
CO has proven that over 200 hands, he LOVES to steal - 50% of the time to be exact. I feel comfortable 3 betting light here. I had been 3 betting him light in prior hands and he would call the raise / fold the flop.

Flop: ($9.75) 8c 8h 2s (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets $3, CO raises to $6, Hero calls $3
CO is definitely defining his hand here by min raising me. I'm putting him on air (AK & the like) or an overpair. Perhaps he is testing me because of our prior history where I'm raising his steals.

Turn: ($21.75) 4c (2 players)
CO bets $10, Hero ???
Are you happy to get it all in here? Are you smoothing the bet? There aren't any draws out there, and he's betting half pot. What is your line?

Hero raises to $25, CO raises to $40, Hero raises to $45.80 all in, CO calls $1.45 all in

River: ($104.65) Jd (2 players - 2 are all in)

Final Pot: $104.65
CO shows 2h 2d (a full house, Twos full of Eights) - Perhaps I got what I deserved by 3 betting light, but I think he's raising with a lot of junk in the CO / BTN by having a 50% attempt to steal...
Hero shows 9d 8d (three of a kind, Eights)
CO wins $101.65
(Rake: $3.00)

  1. Sucky cooler. That's the only hand he could have which beats you. He's still stacking off with some overpairs on the flop and maybe AcKc, AcQc, Ac2c etc. by the turn. I'm quite surprised you didn't re-raise the flop thinking he had an OP 99-QQ.
