      preflop and flop are OK (you may raise more flop - whole pot is ok here).

      On turn its quite hard situation. This 6 is bad card (any 8 will make a straight here). otherwise flush did not come. I would go bet/fold here. his checkraise on turn seems too strong to shove here.

      Another option is to take free card here and reevaluate river. With made hand he bets there and you can call it depending on the size of bet. Dont know if it is better though.

      When he has 8, then you´re drawing dead.
      I think that board is too scary to valuebet, so I´d prefer checking back and deciding on the river if I want to call his river bet.
      If you´re going to bet, then bet/shove is likely better than bet/fold, since he might shove with worse hands and you get ok odds to look him up.
