      Villain was 47/10 and Fold to CBet 33% over 30 hands. I'm getting nearly 3-1 and reckon he's bluffing at least 25% of the time here.

      This sample is way too small, but he does look fishy. Fold to CBet is still useless.

      Since the board is dry, I would cbet a bit smaller: 1/2 PSB so ~$1.20
      Since he called on this dry board I would c/f. you only beat 22, 88-TT, AK on the river and I doubt if he shoves these (I dont see SC's that call on the flop, maaaybe only 45 56 67 78 but you only beat 78).

      I agree about the sample size, the cbet size, and I was going to fold to a turn bet, but I still think he's bluffing the river often enough for this to be profitable. I tell you what he had once a hand evaluator has delivered their verdict.

      I either cBet 50% or check back and get my value from spazziness overcards & lower pockets on the Turn/River

      If you decide to cBet you check back turn mostly and evaluate the River based on his tendencies + odds

      On the River SB bets obviously all 2pairs+, Qx and sometimes 88-TT, 7x and random KJ/AJ/AT hands

      So every 3 hands that you do not beat there has to be 1 in that you beat but I think it is safe to say because of your relatively high cBet size on the Flop, the bluffs are diminished

      Best regards,
