Hi everyone!

Looking for opinions about this hand. The villain seems a standard player, a 24/20 in 80 hands. I think pre-flop and flop is standard, seeking value of A-high like AQ-AT. In turn, I decided 88 might be a good hand to turn into bluff, trying to put pressure on TT-QQ. I think my best bluffs are hands like KQs-KTs, QJs-QTs and JT to balance the times I hit my A, and 88 with the GS might be also a good one. What do you think about it?

On the other hand, I wasn't able to get folds of a mid-pair. As played, do you prefer a three barrell line as bluff, or a bigger size in turn to resign river to get the folds? I think I stayed halfway,

Thank you all!
