Default Is 88 strong enough here?

This is a $22 seven handed.

Pretty tight table and except for the big stack everyone is kind of bunched together. Hadn't noticed any limping or mini raising with monsters so far, but you never know...

I hadn't played many hands and had hoped perhaps to win this one without a showdown.
Given my position & stack size is this hand strong enough to make this play in this situation? If not, what is?

PartyPoker, Big Blind is t100 (7 handed) Converter on

UTG (t1070)
UTG+1 (t865)
MP1 (t760)
CO (t2125)
Button (t1140)
SB (t990)
Hero (t1050)

Preflop: Hero is in BB with 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 8[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
<font color="gray">UTG folds</font>, UTG+1 calls t100, <font color="red">MP1 raises t200</font>, CO calls t200, Button calls t200, SB calls t150, <font color="red">Hero raises t1050</font>, <font color="gray">UTG+1 folds</font>, MP1 calls t560, <font color="gray">CO folds</font>, <font color="gray">Button folds</font>, <font color="gray">SB folds</font>
