      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.57 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:spade: , 8:spade:
      CO folds, Hero raises to $1,75, SB calls $1,50, BB calls $1,25.

      Flop: ($5,25) 3:heart: , Q:diamond: , 8:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $1,00, Hero raises to $6,50, SB folds, BB calls $5,50.

      Turn: ($18,25) A:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $8,00, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $18,25

      Here another example of a minidonk :) Aggain I raise, since I want to protect against the flushdraw and aggain it doesn't work out well :) . Whats the best line? I don't see how I just could call his bet, since he would be able to kick me out of the pot easily on the turn and there is someone behind me. I think with a raise I migh get K8 and A8 to fold. Also a few pocketpairs fold.
      The next option is fold but I think that is far too weak^^

      You played your hand fine.
      Re-raise flop is good on the flop even with middle pair and if he bets again on the turn then he is probably crushing you third pair, so folding on that spot is imo the best.
