      Hi,
      probably nice hand.Should be opp depending decision.Are you using any stats program?I think I'd play turn differently.I'd bet/fold(if I can still).Not every time he will have made hand like flush and you have to protect against 1 card fd,straight draw.Against some opps I'd play as u did.
      On the river it's not mistake to call small bet,but take a note that he's valubeting small.
      Good luck :)

      In a 3bet pot I wouldn´t worry much about draws, I like the check in turn and river is ok too. If we bet the turn, then we cannot fold anymore.

      hi
      if we assume hes a good player
      in a 3bet pot on this board when he just calls flop i take the 8 as a blank and bet call .
      if he has a hand like two pair or set he is going to raise it and get it in on the flop because the board is too drawy and he cant afford to see another card . he doesnt have too many 8s in his range because i dont think he calls a8 preflop so probably just a hand like 98 or a floped flush beats you and this is a small part of his range
      without the k of :spade: its ok to give up if you dont like variance but i think when you bet this turn you are most likely ahead
