      I think it's fine, I may even bet a slightly more on turn. River card is ugly and against pot sized bet I would fold as well. But that's just my humble opinion, may be completely wrong.

      Don't raise a fish OOP with a hand like 88. It's highly unlikely you'll have an overpair after the flop and it will be very difficult to outplay him OOP. Not to mention you are so rarely getting value when you hit a set when a fish limp/calls.

      I would check and play a small pot with what turned out to be 3rd pair. If the river wasn't the Ac I may just b/f. Imo you overplayed your hand in this situation.

      Keep it small as you have showdown value.

      PS: Checking the river OOP after 2 bullets is almost always followed by a big bet from fishy players... Watch out from now on... It gets you into ugly spots but you'll catch many bluffs when you have a medium strength hand.

      Hope it helps! Good luck!

      if river were blank you can c/c, but here i think you´re beat too often
