      Well against most tags betting that turn really doesn't have a purpose at nl10. They won't call again with worse and they're unlikely to fold better hands like JJ-QQ/AA (or even to have those to begin with). I'd check behind and decide on the river, likely check back if possible as he could check/call with 8x, and fold to any reasonable bet if he donks out as it's just really hard for him to have worse hands to bet with at that point.

      Hope it helps.
