Mid pocket pair on low board

2/5 NL, Hustler on a Wednesday night

BB is a luckbox who likes to see flops with suited cards and get it in with flush draws. Otherwise appears to play honestly. $1k stack

MP is somewhat loose-passive, ~$200ish stack.

I'm in the HJ, $400ish stack, playing tight as usual.

MP limps, I raise to $25 with :8s :8c, BB and MP call - 3 ways to the flop.

Flop: $75
:3d :3s :2h

Checked to me, I bet $50. BB folds, MP check/raises to $100.

I ship for about $100 more.

    Seems standard to me due to stacks and probable range of the villain....what does the villain have here in your mind? Could he have a hand like A3 and if so would he raise on this board? is he limp calling 99 or better? if the answer is no to both and he is much more likely to have 44 - 77 then you are either calling/raising his bet here. The call or raise decision is dependant on how you feel the villain will react to your play.
