I'm thinking the way I played the hand was way too weak-tight; I didn't find out any information about the hand and pretty much just said: "Hey, I'm checking, take the pot." What's the best way to play the turn?

Why did you check the turn? Surely you have to bet again.

Or else at least check/raise. What did u think he had?

Considering you completed the flop, a check can be very useful there, but a bet looks good as well. On the turn, you can either bet out, or with the 3rd 8, try to check and induce a few bluffs.

Either way, folding sucks here.

I'd call the turn and call a reasonable river bet too. You probably win this pot quite often.

Why are you just completing the SB here? Is this just my newbness that doesn't understand? We'll be OOP the rest of the way...unless you're only playing to hit a monster flop.

I agree.
You are now heads up here.
There is no chance I let the BB limp in here.
I'm raising 3XBB pre flop.
Why give the BB a chance to hity something on the flop ?

I would often check the turn to induce a bluff. Then I would pwn him with a raise. Looks like you checked because you were scared he had trips. That's bad.
