      Villain is aggressive spewtard.

      On the flop I raise because his play looks weak to me and with bfd I think it's a good option for flop.

      Turn call - questionable - I thought that he can have some turned fd's and enough weak hands in his range to support a call in order to play a river.

      River I would like to bet like 6.5 on order to take him off weak hands and busted draws. What do you think about checking since we win against busted draws anyway, can it be better than betting ?

      If you picked up flushdraw on the turn I would prefer raising turn to 8$ and shoving any river. Right here I think fold is better, since I really doubt he would b/c flop with bacdoor hearts, rather he has there 7x of hearts that has you crushed.

      But interesting idea would be floating turn and then either shoving river or betting really big, putting him directly on 7x or 88 type hand.
      And for that reason I think you have to bet river 8$ to make fold all his weaker hands than Jx

      Best regards,
