      Howdy,

      I would fold A8o pre. You are IP, but that won't help you if you are being dominated by A9+ which can happen quiet often (in fact - this was the case).

      Postflop I think you played it fine. I may bet turn a bit bigger (0.6-0.7) in case he has club draw and he is still calling with it on turn, but folding river if he misses.

      Good luck!
