Is 88 still in his range?
talking about the turn? if he had some kind of medium pocket pair i'd certainly expect him/most players to bet it again on the turn, trying to get value from my overcard-heavy range (which is what I think a lot of players would expect me to have here based on my open+position pf and given that I called the flop checkraise instead of folding or 3betting). then again, if he had JT i'd certainly expect him to bet that on the turn also
I'm of the opinion that it is unlikely that BB is going to be 3betting with anything that you can beat, meaning EP LAG is still getting ok odds to call, or your crushed. I can't see doing anything but calling.
talking about the flop? i think it's pretty close after looking at it again. I'd played with BB a fair bit and I think he could show up with 99-JJ here some of the time as well as AK (preflop I mean). i agree with you in that i don't expect him to 3bet any of those on the flop.
