Range betting that flop with your hand is a bit optimistic.
After his check/raise, I think you have to fold.

Buy in for max. Auto top up
Pre flop fine. Betting flop is okayish I guess. The flop favours BBs range more though.
When he check raises, you got no reason to continue cause you have very little equity. He could be doing this with Ace high & still you are beat.
So a fold on the check raise & as played check back turn for me.
Unless you plan on pure bluffing the entire hand which won't be profitable in the long run I guess.
Plus the BB looks like a nit so I'd make an easy fold on the check raise. Bluffing an ace on the river could be reasonable.

I disagree. Raising from late position, we have tons of 9x in our range (A9-98), plus a lot of overpairs villain can't have. Our opponent is really repping only TT and sets.
It's not a bad board to get funky with. If you have a read, I don't hate this. But if you're just multitabling, I don't think you have enough hands to fight back yet. I'd probably just let him have this one.
Turn on auto-top off.
And one last thing: make a note that this player can call from the BB and bluff-raise dry flops, but shuts down after 1 street. It's a telling hand that he feels compelled to defend his BB this hard against someone 14ish hands in.
