I would say just don't play this hand to start with. When the guy makes it 440 into a pot that was only 90 chips, then I would say just don't play this hand again, but more vigorously. Something like: "OMG, FOLD! FOLD! RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!"

Don't chase flushes on paired boards usually, and stuff like that. (because someone might have a full house or better already and you could be drawing dead)

Early stages no need to play K8s and opponent made it 440. This should have been an easy fold on your part.

agree with tyirl Run away as fast as you can.

I agree too. It's ok to limp it behind in position, but K8s is nowhere near strong enough to call even a small raise with, let alone a huge raise.... muck to the raise preflop.
