I plan to post some more 100/200nl (hopefully some 400nl in the future) hands here for a bit of discussion and hopefully help me plug

This hand was on party so HUD stats arent as relevant as it marks hand by seat not by player, So they should be ignored really.
At the time this guy had been sat for around 40 hands and had relatively reg'y looking stats but no real information on him here. I think preflop is probably a little bit loose but there was a fish in the BB and the player directly to my left was 3b'ing an insane amount so didnt want to flat and get forced into folding this pre so elected for the 3b vs UTG as I expect he will open a little bit wider with fish in BB. That being said this isnt the worse candidate for a 3b would prefer it to be suited or something like J9s but if fish in BB calls and UTG folds we are in a pretty good spot
That being said I think flop is close between betting and checking, The reason for the bet is just to protect a little bit and check close to all turns, I could check flop and bet most turns but there are a lot of turns which are bad for us and allow him to barrel us off as his range at this point is still pretty wide
When the K peels off and he barrels I find it hard to believe he has an 8 too often here and I dont know whether or not he would value bet AK here (if he does peel it on the flop which he doesn't necessarily have to, or if he would indeed bet it here) Besides 88 I dont know how many 8s he could have so kinda want to find a call
