      river card was bit too strong to bet again.
      and I think he made some two pair or draw.
      Although there was pair + draw on river possibility, should I fold?

      I think you can definitely 2 barrel for value here vs such a loose fish.
      Question is what's our preferred line on the River?

      It sucks that T8 got there, as well as some backdoor diamonds. I still think he has any AX here, and we only lose to AJ AQ AK A9 A7, while beating A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A8. We need to discount AJ/AK/KK/JJ from villain's range cos he would be likely to either raise those preflop, or raise at some point in time on the Flop or Turn.

      I think we can bet 11 here and fold to a raise. And I don't like the c/c line, i think there are hardly any busted draws, so when he bets here he is usually doing so with hands that has us beat. It's between c/f and b/f
