      If you have bad players behind you I think it's fine to get out of your way and open-raise with A8s, otherwise just fold it. I don't like open-limping regardless of what the table looks like.

      On the flop usually i'd just check/raise that small bet of his, i don't give it much credit coming from anybody. Tags won't c-bet so small if they do c-bet on such a drawy board, and unknowns suck at c-betting altogether.

      As played on the turn I'd lead out, because his small flop bet really doesn't make me confident in his intent to bet again if i check that turn to him, so i'd rather take the betting lead to prevent a check back.

      As played on the river you're not getting away from that i don't think if you have any reason to think he could play a worse hand like that. If he's a tag he has exactly QJ and you can find a fold, otherwise if he's fishy in any way call it off and call it a cooler against anyone decently aggressive.

      Hope it helps.
