      I would bet bigger on flop (~0.16),
      and bet about 1/2 on turn and ck/f river

      Raise to $0.08 preflop in my opinion.

      On the flop make the bet about $0.14-$0.16

      On the turn i'd say the bet is about right.

      River I can understand why you're trying to keep the pot small but I would bet about $0.60 or so. I think the flush on the turn is very unlikely and he probably would have reraised a turn bet. Also if he had JJ or KK he's most likely reraising preflop and on the flop, and I don't tihnk an underpair of 88 on the flop would be calling any bet with that board, so any full house is unlikely as well.

      you can bet a little bigger on the flop
      Turn and river are fine
