Even against a more difficult opponent, you should continue to increase from the small blind with smaller pairs 8-8 and suit different hands until A-J.
I agree that you should defiantly be raising those hands however I feel that you can open that up a bit to include 22+, Ax, kxs, k8+, q8s+ J9s+ T9+ 45s+
If your opponent is 3betting you a lot chances are he is doing so with weak hands so you can start 4 betting him with hands like A4s KTs 88. now that I think about it I may prefer to call with the 88 but anyway.
