      He seems aggressive PF, so I didn't put him on a SET. Also no 4bet stats yet.
      I took a ck/call line on the turn, trying to represent Cbet bluff, but he checks behind. On the river he overbets my thin valuebet. Is this an easy fold? How are my lines and bet sizing?

      I think the Turn check is fine. We should think about his preflop range first though, to determine the number of 8X hands he can have. If he's tight he shouldn't have too many 8X hands besides 78s 89s T8s A8s. We can actually consider value betting Turn as well if he doesn't fold with hands like 77 (possible when the top card pairs), 99 and TT.

      On the River I really dislike your blockbet if you did not have a plan on how to react to a raise. Over here I think he can rep 99 but that's a really narrow range. Perhaps he is turning a hand like 77 or 66 into a bluff so you might have to call.

      I would just half pot and hope he calls with 66/77/TT
