I usually just end up shoving here, but maybe that's just a spew.

Can't find a really great reason not to shove, though.

Shove because he is a shorstack donkey, and by checking you induce bets a lot.

he can easily do this with the flush draw which is way more likely than 810.

Just get it in. If I'm checking this turn it's exactly because I'm going for a C/R. Plus the guy is shortstacked so he sucks anyway ldo.

This is one of the easiest decisions that you could have, it seems. What could you truly put him on with enough confidence to fold here? You have to push in here.

there are few (virtually no?) situations I can think of in which I'd fold an overpair to a 65bb stack who minraise/called pre. this is not one of them. it's not a tough spot: shove. only T8 and maybe some weirdo J9/JJ got there on the turn. if he had one of those hands, be glad he only had $65.
