Giving your opponent credit for a set of any kind is pretty generous. In this case, 8's are the most likely set, as you block AA and QQ. And of course if you 3-bet before the flop, 8's are less likely. It depends on how aggressively your opponent bets, but most of the time, I would say no, you can't fold here.

The only way I might be able to throw away this hand by the river is if straight and flushes got there by the river and my opponent was being super aggro. Besides that I'd have a hard time doing so and most of the time I feel like you'd have to continue because there are a decent amount of worse hands that you could be extracting value from

I know it seems that way but it isn't. Probably happens as often as you set your pair against two pair or top pair and kicker. The losing side hurts more so you remember those. When you win it's what you planned on happening so it's just another not so memorable one in the win column.

I am not sure there is anything you can do there. There is no reason to fold with top two. You are just going to give up a lot of chips.

Coolers are many, I do not pay attention to them, I'm not lucky, that's all.
