Re: Hi!! Please helping me to reading Villain in this hand!!

Just a further note on above, in most scenarios QQ is still cbet at a fairly high frequency but 88 is cbet almost always.

When we bet, we make them fold a lot of hands that have solid equity against our hand, thus denying their chance to improve to a better pair than ours. It also denies them the chance to bluff us out of the pot when a scary card comes on the turn or river (and there are a lot more scary cards for 88 than QQ).

So betting 88 is much more important than betting QQ in this spot, even though 88 is a weaker hand.
