      Didnt want to bet too much on flop and turn as board was pretty dry if fish missed with undercards etc, he was playing 38/27/4.5 so didnt expect his pre flop line........

      It's fine, he'd play Kx the same way most likely and you'll stack them.

      Might I suggest taking a look at the check/shove line on the river? It's pretty hard for villain to have hands like 8x/99-QQ there considering you have 2 8's, and even harder for him to call a third barrel with those when the A comes in. On the other hand, whenever he has busted clubs it gives him a chance to bluff at it, if he rivered the A he'll probably bet it as well and maybe talk himself into calling it off, and if he has Kx he will for sure bet his trips and call your jam.

      Hope it helps.
