      I prefer calldown turn and river - when you raise what worse hands are you really looking to be called by - seen as you look like 8x. Maybe some call with flush draw OOP hoping to hit. Whereas calldown you are letting the worse hands bet at you and playing pot control too.

      On river I fold - he has called a raise OOP and then bets out what looks like a 8x valuebet.

      I´d also call turn. This way pot is also smaller and you can call river bet
