$2 NLHE 6-max: Is this a losing play long term?

Yatahay Network – $0.02 NL (6 max) – Holdem – 6 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

This one hurts a little bit to post. I was trying out playing 6 tables (4 is the most I’ve done before) and it ended up being too much for me to handle at certain points in the session. During this hand I misclicked and snap called the flop. I may have just folded had I seen the bet size, but we went to the turn anyways.

My main questions are for on this river. Am I only getting called by his Kx of clubs flushes here longterm when I 2x pot jam or does it seem bluffy enough that I can get paid from some other Kx hands as well and worse 8x hands? I personally think I would generate enough folds in this spot to make a bet like this work anyways but I guess my question is should this hand be apart of my value side or should it just primarily be boats/flushes and I should just check call river/bet smaller with it for value instead. I’m just assuming his sets and two pairs would mostly bet turn as well and his 10x/pocket pairs would check back the flop. Also any backdoor clubs he has that are not Kx I think would be betting the turn as well to set up river jams.

Hero (SB): 131.5 BB
BB: 144.5 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A 8

fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 2 BB, Hero raises to 8 BB, BB calls 7 BB, fold

Flop: (18 BB, 2 players) 8 T K
Hero checks, BB bets 18 BB, Hero calls 18 BB

Turn: (54 BB, 2 players) 6
Hero checks, BB checks

River: (54 BB, 2 players) 8
Hero bets 105.5 BB and is all-in, BB calls 105.5 BB
