Ok, so I went for the blind steal here and got reraised. Pretty much figured that he was on a big A or pocket pair, but thought that it might be worth the call since I had position, and most likely live cards. Villain wasn't doing anything real nitty, playing pretty solid and using his big stack. Probably mistake #1 in the hand, but this one isn't nearly as bad as the jam at the end. With 2 A on the flop, and his instant check, I pretty much figured I was dead and that he had an A. Hence trying to check it down. 8d on the river was just a horrible card as it made both our hands. My question, could I have reasonably put him on A8 when I hit my flush on the end?

Hard to say - it's better not to post the results of the hand if you want a meaningful analysis.

Without any information to the contrary, there's nothing wrong with your assumption about him having a big ace or a pair, which puts you firmly behind on that flop.

That said, you beat those hands on the river. A8 would be a possible holding for that hand, as would A9 (in the absence of any reads, I don't know that A3 or KTd / K-rag diamonds plays that way pre-flop).

Trying to steal the blinds with 2 callers in front of you was your main mistake. Gotta figure at least 1 of them will see the flop since it only cost them 1200 more for a chance at a pot of 3000. Why he would reraise preflop with Ace - 8 suited here is beyond me, but then again so is the fact that you called it.

After the initial decision to try and steal and then calling the reraise not much you could do. I would have bet something on the turn if I were him with 2 diamond showing but it likely would have resulted in the same outcome for you.

I probably wouldn't reraise the river bet with the non nut flush on a paired Ace board. Freeroll villains overvalue any suited Ace, which makes it too difficult to put their range on a AT+, especially with such a small raise.
