      Hello zghrv,

      Flop: Basically you can even CBet the flop with the GS and backdoor-FD.
      Turn: And I'd bet bigger here like $0,65. We still have to protect from any kind of draw.
      River: First of all, try asking what hands do you beat here? Then try putting him on some range, lets say he maybe tried to Check/Raise us on flop with some set or 2pairs which didn't go well while we Checked behind. Then he had a fail card on turn because it gives a straight possibility and therefore decided to play cautiously. And the river as the 8 comes he overbets big. Therefore we can at the best hope that he has a Qx and what's for split, but is it really worth Calling? No. And what worse hands do we beat? Only likely bluffs and that's all. Even KQ beats us and a lot of FHs. Therefore I would easily fold this hand while haven't even invested much into the pot.

      Best regards.
