      Villain - no history basically, only 4 hands 33/33/50% steal

      I guess I should make it bigger, but mostly it's just donks hoping that the blinds have c/f button checked and quickfolded so no need to make it big imo.

      Flop standard cbet, on the turn I chose to c/c since he might fold to my 2nd barrel coz he can't have a lot there and possibly sees as me not having much there either and go for a float.

      River I just donk relatively smallish to control the river action bet sizing and perhaps even get some nonbelieving low PP to call who thinks that I think that the K is an awful good bluffing card on the river there since I couldn't represent much earlier in the hand.

      I´d still make it at least 0.6$, since I think you don´t want to play oop A8 very big pot.
      Flop and turn are fine I might c/c river to let him bluff again with air. Don´t think he would fold there better hands if you bet out that small and hard him to see calling worse
