      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has A:spade: K:heart:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.50, MP+1 calls $1.50, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($3.75, 2 players) 8:heart: 5:diamond: Q:diamond:
      Hero bets $3.00, MP+1 calls $3.00

      Turn: ($9.75, 2 players) T:club:
      Hero checks, MP+1 bets $4.00, Hero calls $4.00

      River: ($17.75, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP+1 checks

      When he bet that small on turn, I was pretty sure he had some weak pair and I decided to call cause I figured I had 10 good outs. Looking at the hand now, I think a much better solution was to raise to 14 or something like that.

      Again, if he has some pair on that board why do you think he'd want to bet with it instead of trying to see a showdown? Also on that board chances are if he has a pair it has some draw to go with it, and if he has a draw well he has nutted outs as well. So I think there is a good chance you actually see him bet/call in position, which is kinda bad for you when you only have AK-high with a gutshot and overcard outs that might be tainted sometimes, out of position with no idea how to play most rivers.

      If you really think he has some weak pair and you're willing to put more money in as a semi-bluff, just barrel the turn on your own and be ready to fire a third one to get rid of hands that had like pair+gutshot on the turn and now can't stand a third bet.

      Hope it helps.
