      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8, 8.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB folds, BB calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.6) J, 4, Q (2 players)
      BB bets $1.60, Hero calls $1.60.

      Turn: ($4.8) 8 (2 players)

      BB bets $55.14, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $20.3.

      I was scared shitless here, we're so deep and last time I was in this situation (deep & versus river overshove) I ran into backdoor flush ...

      Villain is 23/7/2.8AF (river AF 7.0) over 106 hands

      so strange play
      First he pots it and then makes small lead and then small 3-bet on the turn
      I think river fold is fine, he has there often 9T, don´t really put him on flush too often.
      If you´re going to call river you have to think he is playing either 44 or KT that way, which doesn´t seem that likely, so fold seems better even if you sometimes get bluffed out best hand
