      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 8
      2 folds, BTN raises to $1.25, SB folds, Hero raises to $4.25, BTN calls $3

      Flop: ($8.75) 8 2 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($8.75) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.50, Hero calls $5.50

      River: ($19.75) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $12.25, Hero raises to $24.50, BTN folds

      I think he is rarely having TT-JJ in his range ( either 4bet pre or bet flop) so I'm only targetting some 8x like 78s, T8s while 99 and 98s beat me. I believe my x/r is bad here and I would now choose to x/c river ( I am making my profit from his bluffs)

      Preflop: Flat here, this is definitely strong enough to call in BB

      Flop: Just bet this here, we have thin value from some worse hands like 87s/89s/77/66/AQ. Checking makes more sense if you have a gameplan in mind involving having a check/calling range here. But in a vacuum betting is probably better

      Turn: Bet now, I don't see any reason for a double check, and there are so many bad cards on the River that could come out (T-K = 33% of the deck). Unless you knew villain was probably going to stab at the Turn.

      River: I think you must check/raise here. He can play some 8X hands in this way, and sometimes he disbelieves you and makes a lighter call. I don't like the min-raise though, it looks so strong. If you want to appear bluffier you should check/push the river.
