I think it's PokerAce HUD, google it and you'll find it. It costs $25 though and requires Pokertracker (which costs $55, don't buy now though, there's a new version coming out very soon. But if you have it already, PokerAce HUD is the program you want to look for).
My comments on the 88 hand:
Here's a little manual HH:
Stacks: SB ~64, BB ~95, hero has both covered
folded to hero
hero to 3.50 from CO [8s8d]
BB raise to 11
flop [6s Th 3s] Pot: ~33
BB bet 14
hero raise to 30
So he 3-bets this preflop, suggesting a legitimate hand, and the caller behind does as well. I really don't mind the call especially if you think you'll get another caller giving you increased implied odds as well as pot odds
, on top of the fact that you could have the best hand and win the pot if both the other 2 have over cards. BB leads out with a smallish cbet, now I think you were right, it does look a lot like AK or something like that. If not for the flush draw and the potential straight draws out there, this could easily be AA/KK, and it still could be, but I'd think those hands would bet a bit more here. This actually looks a lot like a set or 2-pair tbh mainly because he's not at all afraid his hand is behind, betting into a 3-way pot, but I don't see a hand like that that would 3-bet preflop.
But let's look at it from his point of view. You've flat called a 3bet, what kind of range do you have in his eyes? You most likely don't have AA/KK here, and a set is the only hand he should really worry about. If you both were deeper and he didn't have to shove there I could see him doing it with a lot of hands, just on the fact that you're bluffing
this a lot, since anyone familiar with you knows you're aggressive, knows that this was a pretty dry board and that you could be taking advantage of the fact that it looks like he's trying to steal the pot. The only problem is that shoving there gives your stack away on the hands where you have a set or 2-pair, but with that shove he's even folding out hands like QQ and less, not sure about AA/KK. So I think it's possible that he could have been on a bluff there just because of the way you were playing, but I think it's probably he had a hand there, just because of the fact that he put his stack in. You obviously had somewhat of a hand, and usually you don't want to be stacking off on a bluff. So I'm not sure about the initial push, but you probably ran into a high pocket pair, don't really see any other hands that would take this line.
And I don't think you played it that bad, if you had won it you'd have talked about how well you played the hand and the good read. I think you were a bit results-oriented on that one and the majority of the time that he will fold to that raise. On the other hand I really don't mind just folding and giving up there either. There are 2 people remaining, either of which could have hit a big hand that has you crushed and will stack. Iffy either way I think, but not a horrible play raising that bet. You just got unlucky and ran into the top part of his range. It happens.
