      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, K.
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, SB calls $0.09, 2 folds, MP2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.24) Q, 6, 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.16, SB calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.56) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.56) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.56.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card ace(A K).
      SB shows a pair of eights(K 8).

      SB wins with a pair of eights(K 8).

      The question is wether to second-barrel or not. After seeing his hand he probably would have folded it, but most ppl wouldnt call with K8s though, and might aswell have hit the queen right?

      checking back turn and giving up is fine
      he woulodn´t really folded turn, since he also picket up flushdraw and you have to bet river that he would maybe sometimes fold his hand
      Best just to give up and go to showdown, you´re sometimes ahead with AK high and he doesn´t fold often enough if you barrel there
