Default 3/6 flop 2 pair against tough villain

Villain and I are at several tables together, he's a tag regular who plays 5/10+ and crushes middle stakes. He's tricky/solid.

He raises in the CO, I call on the BTN with 78s.

Flop comes J 7 8 rainbow

He checks, I bet 38/48, he checkraises to 138...

I don't know this player very well, but I assume he's got me beat most of the time?

Smells like an overpair.

Oh I forgot to mention, we were 200 BB's deep which is why I didn't think he had an overpair or AJ.

I would call and re-evaluate the turn. You're in position so you can exercise pot control and if you're behind there are a lot of cards that will slow him down even more. If you've never seen him do this and since most people tend to play more straightforward deep I would try to get this to showdown as cheaply as possible (if possible) to see what he is doing this with (and then make a note).

If you have results would you mind PMing them, presuming you didn't fold to the flop CR that is.
