      SB checks, Hero bets $4.20, SB raises to $15.90 (AI), Hero calls $11.70

      I bet small on river to induce a raise, because he is agro on river.

      That way I am missing valyue from 8x.
      BUt if I shove, maybe 8x can fold there so then I am not getting value anyway.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop open is on the loose side, might be ok with fish in the blinds.

      Flop - decent spot to bet for value.

      Overbet on the turn is fine, when SB is likely fish.

      I think your river sizing is good, because often in villains range there are busted draws which sill have enough rope left to bluff. He may not even have 8x in his range after you already overbet the turn, so I wouldn't be overly concerned about missing value.
