      I guess shove is the only play, since ch/c only isolates me against better hands and ch/f is bad

      I wouldn't say that a c/c isolates you against better hands, as he could easily have a hand like J9s, 79s, 67s or QJ, which missed their draw on the flop and turn and will then spew and bluff at the pot when you check.

      Saying that, your line was the best imo, his range mostly consists of Tx here, maybe 8x if he's very stubborn and calls down very light, and a c/c wouldn't be of any use against those hands as they just check back their weak showdown value hands on the river such as Tx and 8x.

      I think in this hand as a whole you took the best line, he has shown no indication that he has a stronger hand than your overpair with his calls, 8Ts is the only hand I can see that would maybe play it this way and have you beat. But his range is largely Tx, which you obviously beat so your bet/bet/bet line was the best :)
