Default 88 Later in the Game

Usually I'm in push/fold mode here. Now that I actually have a few chips, should I limp and play for set value? It's short-handed and 88 is probably the best hand on the table, can I raise? How would you play this preflop (postflop I like how it is, really don't want to do anything fancier).

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t50 (5 handed) converter

SB (t2975)
BB (t1745)
UTG (t605)
MP (t945)
Hero (t1730)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
UTG calls t50, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Hero calls t50, SB completes, BB checks.

Flop: (t200) T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks.

Turn: (t200) 5[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
SB checks, <font color="#CC3333">BB bets t100</font>, UTG folds, Hero folds, SB calls t100.

River: (t400) T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, <font color="#CC3333">BB bets t100</font>, SB folds.

Final Pot: t500
