      Hey Bogdan1190,

      in freeplays it's standard to play aggressively only when you have at least TP and J kicker. So, letting this one go wouldn't be a mistake. However, if you know opponents are very fishy and capable of calling you with worse too, then betting with 8 kicker is fine also.

      In freeplays we usually bet potsize on the flop, for protection and for building up pot.

      As played, flop and turn are fine, however, I would play check/call on the river, so some busted flushdraw could try to make a move.
