      Easy fold

      This just can't be profitable by any means (at least in the micros) even vs a pretty crazy opponent. Just wait til you have the right end of the str, regardless if it's a passive or crazy opp. This isn't a bluff 99,99% he's just looking to get max value.

      ~25bb pot, you've only invested 12-13bb yourself while you'd have to call more than a 100bb extra for that relatively small pot with 4 to a str out there with the absolute idiot end of it.

      I'd CBH turn, you don't know the player so he could be a calling station. Another reason is that J helps part of his range: JT, J9, J8s, T7s, T8, T9. If you're trying to bluff an 8x it's not a good ideia, because a 8x will usually be 87, 89, 8T+. Overall I think the board is too connected to 2nd barrel, and you only have a GS to a straight that can be beat.

      I would consider raising pf 72s, but 72o is fold always, unless players are 5/5 which nl 5 it isn´t likely the case
      agree checking back turn, since he would very likely c/c or c/r you. Folding river seems fine. he is sometimes bluffing, but mostly should have there straight

      Well actually that was pretty much the case here. Although i nit up recently, i think my VPIP was still higher then the VPIP of the rest of the table combined. But yeah, playing 72 from any position any situation is stupid.
      Thanks for help guys anyway, i love you.
