      Thoughts? best line with pocket 2nd pair is to play fit or fold vs this type of player?

      It's fine until the river, you can play it slower if you want to but in general he will indeed have enough worse hands there that valuebetting TT for two streets if profitable once the J pairs.

      On the river it becomes a tad thinner, a few gutshots got there and there is no chance for worse hands to improve anymore so the range of worse hands that will call a bet there will be significantly smaller.

      If you want to check behind it's no big deal, if you think he's quite bad and/or frustrated enough by your constant betting that he might call it all off with 9x or a rivered 8, just jam and don't sweat the showdown if you're beat, of course he'll have a bunch of better hands in his range, running into the top of somebody's range isn't proof that you betting was wrong. Just make a note that he c/c c/c c/j trips so you know next time not to discount big hands just because he didn't raise earlier, and pass up thin value spots.

      Hope it helps.
