      Dont post results. It might affect the hand reviews as people tend to look whether you won or lost the hand.

      On the hand:

      Definitely fold or 3bet preflop. A8s is not in my BU calling range and i dont think you can make profit in the long term playing this way.

      The way the hand is played - SB check/raises the flop vs 2 opponents which indicates a lot of strength. This should already ring a bell. Think of his range ? What does he flat call preflop with ? What does he check/raise the flop with ? Would he check/raise a naked flush/straight drow vs 2 opponents at nl 2 ? People at NL 2 are more likely to play their drows passively and you are in fact the example of that.

      So his range here is quite easy to guess here imo : 55/77/57, 89s, 24s, 68s, 46s K7, K5, KK ? (if he calls all these pre but its nl 2 after all). I discount any bluffs as i dont believe he's bluffing here like ever.

      I like the turn check/behind.

      River is an easy bet but i am folding to the raise. Its a hard fold to do at NL2 and especially ingame but having in mind his flop range i dont believe he is pushing a weaker flush or a straight here. These are in his calling range. His jamming range should be full houses only.
