      I can obv isolate pf...
      And I think the best is might to lead out flop, but wanted to check/raise because I didn't show any strenght pf.
      Shove for max value or make standard 3/4pot river?

      Some serious quality here.

      I think he tried to trap you on the flop... (K8 makes sense here, AK too)

      I'd also protect the flop.

      3/4 might be better than shoving, you made it clear that you have some serious firepower on the turn. He's calling anything with K8, 3/4 with AK. If he limped KK (AA would be fun, how likely is that) you'd be probably staring at an all-in on the turn and he's folding all the rest on the river.

      39/11/1 would unlikely to lead out without a good hand on that flop. So I like to bet out. If he ahs Ax or flushdraw then I can get 2-3 streets of value. And bet/3-bet line is always better than c/r.
      River: it is fine to shove. Since he called your 5-bet on the turn he should always have here 8, which he wouldn´t fold.
