      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.61 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:heart: , 8:heart: . Hero posts a blind of $0,50.
      UTG2 calls $0,50, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0,50, Hero checks, BU folds, SB calls $0,25, BB checks.

      Flop: ($2,50) 8:diamond: , 3:diamond: , 2:spade: (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG2 checks, MP3 bets $2,50, Hero calls $2,50, 3 folds.

      Turn: ($7,50) 7:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $7,50, Hero calls $7,50.

      River: ($22,50) A:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $39,50 (All-In),

      His check on te river was very weak and with the A:diamond: i could represent a big hand.
      I overbet the river in case he wanna play c/c on the river, so it would be a very difficult for him to c/c here with an mediocre hand.

      Or is this a case that only better hands would call and worser will fold?

      you have showdown value, I would check behind.

      Concerning the fold equity, if you bet pot it should be the same, I doubt he will reraise you with anything else but the flush, and in this case you save 35BB...

      I would fold on the turn, too expensive for toppair good kicker.
      And as cindy1985 said, I would check-behind since if you think you have the best hand, no need to bluff.

      You should fold turn, no need to continue with a marginal player who pots twice on limped pot.
      River: You probably win sometimes if you check, he would fold sometimes if you bet, but you don´t have to shove- 20$ bet has the same fold equity.
      Since you continued on the turn, then you can easily check behind- you believed that you have the best hand on the turn, then what kind of worse hand would call your shove on the river.
