      Hero (SB): $97.13 (194.3 bb)
      BB: $46.64 (93.3 bb)
      MP1: $50.69 (101.4 bb)
      MP2: $19.03 (38.1 bb)
      MP3: $51.89 (103.8 bb)
      CO: $46.56 (93.1 bb)
      BTN: $21.05 (42.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      3 folds, CO calls $0.50, BTN folds, Hero raises to $2.50, BB folds, CO calls $2

      Flop: ($5.50) 8 Q J (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.16, CO calls $4.16

      Turn: ($13.82) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $8.75, CO raises to $17.50, Hero folds

      $31.32 pot ($1.72 rake)
      Final Board: 8 Q J K
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$15.41 net)
      CO mucked and won $29.60 ($14.19 net)

      VPIP: 46, PFR: 11, 3B: 4, AF: 1,1, Hands: 87

      Despite the K on the turn, I still decide to bet as he's a fish with 32 WTSD.
      I thought many worse hands would have called anyway as well as draws (the ones that didn't close).
      But he raises, and I'm out.

      Hey Atrocious Nightmare,

      Turn is an unfortunate card. Not just in the sense that you can be beat, but also because it makes extracting value from worse harder. Perhaps this is one of those spots where a smaller value-bet is good despite the drawy board.

      I think your turn bet is thin, but fine though, considering villain's 40VPIP and evident tendency to limp-call pf. I think folding to a raise is correct here.
