River trips after monotone flop and facing a bet

i have just sat down with a fresh $500 buy-in (cap at borg) and straddle to get my first hand: Ah5d.

i don't know relevant villain and i know most of this player pool, so he is likely a tourist or very infrequent player. mid-50s, silent, expressionless.

2 limpers, blinds call and i check it through:

flop ($50): Th8h5h

SB checks, BB bets $20, i call, CO folds, BTN calls, SB folds.

turn ($110): 2d

BB bets $40, i call, BTN folds.

river ($190): 5c

BB bets $80. my play?

    I assume the effective stacks are $500...

    I would probably try raising the turn bet. I would range villainas, has a flush already or some kind of straight draw (with or without) a....possibly a broadway with a T....

    Also if we raise OTT and V calls we can get to showdown free (or fold to a bet) unless of course we hit the flush.

    OTR I would probably make a crying call....probably a leak of mine....idk.... Definitely not surprised to see a flopped flush but in a cash game I'll call there. If we are beat you are still getting valuable information and have position on him for future hands.

    Raise the flop. Attack this limped pot. Be prepared to bomb the turn. Villain can't continue with anything but a flopped flush, and you have the redraw if he gets sticky.

    As played, I'm probably folding the river. I think the only hand that he'd barrel three streets with that you beat is K 5.

    I think river is a fold. Unless he would play top two or top pair flush draw same way. Then you could go for a raise fold maybe
