      Very aggressive opponent, was it the correct line to take?

      Thought if I hit two pair or better villan would stack off with TPTK

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8, T.
      CO folds, BU raises to $0.50, SB folds, Hero calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($1.1) K, 2, 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($1.1) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.78, BU raises to $1.56, Hero raises to $4.29, BU raises to $7.02, Hero raises to $25.28, BU calls $17.48.

      River: ($50.1) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $50.1.

      calling min-raise is fine
      I´d personally would lead out that that board but if you think he might raise you as bluff then c/c is also fine
      I´d b/c turn and c/c river, since if player is checking back flop and now raising turn, then he is not really doing that with AK, but rather hand that improved his hand (this case TT or T8) and if you can´t be sure he is raising turn with worse hands best go to showdown and if you really see him checking back flop with AK/KQ and then raising turn for value you can 3-bet turn and playing for stacks
