      Hello swanny36,

      While the 8x made less likely him to have a hand, I mean a pair which you beat you might even consider going to Check the turn. Only hands which you get value from on turn is anyways just a FD.

      But as played depends a lot on opponent, do you consider him bluffing this way his missed draws? Kinda hard to tell that if we don't know the opponent ourselves. Against somewhat aggressive opponent your line should be doable. Although against some passive ones it's basically rather a fold while it looks like somewhat a thin value.

      Best regards.
