      Hey fl4m3r,

      Preflop call is fine.

      Flop call is fine, hopefully you have some implied odds.

      When villain bets small on the turn I'd raise to about $0.40 with the intention of firing safe rivers for value.

      As played you have to fold to villains shove on the river. He is not playing 2pair like this. Either you are chopping or he has a boat, and you already hold 2 of the 8s so it's less likely he has one.
