Villian was 54/8 over a small sample (24 hands). Is this an ok play or should I have just checked the flop?

With two face cards and a flush draw the texture of the flop makes me wary of firing out a bet there. We can have no idea whether that flop hit the villain but the call of a pre-flop raise makes me worried when paint hits.

Simply note that he makes questionable calls pf with K3 and when he hits his hand he is passive post-flop and move on.

With 88 and against just one caller you should be betting most flops but not this one, this one is very dangerous I think you should check fold here. If it came something like King 7 2 rainbow this is a much safer flop and a good spot to bet.

u did rigth to make a bet since u was the agressor, but have to commite to the pot also. so if ur opponent checks on 4th, and with that board on a 7 guy game with ur stak u should think about 20 secs and bet 450, since theres is str, and AK on the board, he could call, but hey! he could've got 77
