      As it's unlikely that BTN is calling turn with some draw, then bluffs it on the river, or that he's thin valuebetting worse, plus his river aggression is also quite low, I decided to check/fold my overpair here.
      What do you think?

      very nitty fold. First of all BU is limping pf, that likely is quite wide range, second he is just calling flop and turn, that says he most likely has there worse hand than QQ. Third 8d is quite blank card and you check to him- I don´t see any reason why he should not try to bluff you out with missed hearts (especially if you c/f your overpairs) or valuebet thin Jx
      I would put him all-in myself (or bet smt like 11$), since my hand should still be good and I can´t really see myself c/f that spot

      best regards,
