      Known players:

      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , 8:club:
      2 folds, SB raises to $0,45, Hero calls $0,30.

      Flop: ($0,85) A:spade: , K:spade: , Q:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,6, Hero raises to $1,80, SB calls $1,20.

      Turn: ($4,45) 2:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, SB calls $3,00.

      River: ($10,45) 8:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $10,45

      On the flop I raised because it's a dangerous flop, and I didn't want a J, T, or any :spade: to come on the turn and face a bet, so I raised. With that call he could have a pair + GS, FD, Ax. 2P would re-raise I think.

      On the turn I still want to protect my hand so I bet. But it's just TPBK, should I make a $10 pot just for this?

      with backdoor flushdraw and that he would likely not continue too many worse Ax hands and would very often also 3-bet flop with AK/AQ or sets then I´d just prefer call.
      You can bet turn, but very likely he is not again folding better hand, so Id take my free river card
      Not really sure if he is calling you down with AJ/AT or KQ ´but since he didn´t c/rai on the turn I think you have to shove river for value
