If you don't have any specific reads a good rule is that an overpair is often a fold if you get raised big on the turn or the river on low levels. Especially if the river has few missed draws.

In this case, you get raised big and on a paired board. Not many low-stakes players bluff at the right frequency on these boards so unless you notice that the villain is a maniac or likes to bluff it is almost always a fold.

The cards hit BB:s range pretty well also since he calls with a lot of Tx and lower pairs and lower connectors.

Raises OTR usually means we are beat. Weak players that call too much often do such a move with a stronger hand than ours. But I think we cannot fold here. If we are beat we take a note and move on.

Why are you betting turn for pot! This is a huge blunder in my view when villain could so easily have a T. You need to slow down at that point as you hand has been downgraded. The river is a trivial fold. Not read the spoiler yet but almost certainly he had a T or boat.

So this time he had the one logical bluff, but there are only 3 combos of this and many villains wont go for it. Meanwhile there are 6 logical boats and 4 AT, 8 KT, 8 QT etc

This kind of stuff just happens. You run into some players that want to reinvent the wheel with bluffs.
