My plan for the turn would be (assuming he makes another bet and basically pot commits himself with any draw) to shove over the top on any brick turn and be very happy.
On a 7,Q or 8, since they don't complete many of his possible draws, we have much the same plan although we're no longer ecstatic about the situation. We should be comfortably ahead of his range though.
Facing a big bet on a spade turn i probably find a fold seeing as there are a lot more combos of his draws completed by that card than by either a 7,8 or Q.
It feels rough playing LAGtards, and you often have to make brave decisions. That's how these guys play, they out maximum pressure on you and try to get you to fold your hand. It's not generally a good strategy in poker, but playing LAGtards I become very passive and let them bluff stacks off, and I get sticky with hands I would snap fold against other guys. That's just the best way to beat them. Sure, every so often they'll have a hand and you'll feel like a muppet for calling down with 2nd pair or some trash, but more often than not you'll catch them doing something silly without a real hand!
