      Hey LightXRay,

      You can probably extract a little more value prefop, perhaps by raising to $0.12 or $0.14.

      Flop raise is fine.

      Turn call is fine. It's true opponent may have an 8 but he also may be semi-bluffing or block-betting with worse.

      River bet is fine, sizing is fine imo.
