      Yeah I think c/f turn would be better. Maybe you can bet a bit bigger on the flop, with the intention to check fold on a lot of turns. I think $2 in a $2.35 pot looks way bigger than $1.75.
      I think it minimizes the possibillity he's gonna play back at you.

      The hands he's gonna continue with on the turn either have you beat or have a good amount of equity against your 88 (j, 9, QT, ...). I don't think you fold out better hands, just a 9 maybe. I would just hope he called with a lower pp or a straight draw and get to see a free showdown if he misses.
