So I actually planned to bet fold the river thinking he wont shove with a non flush hand. What do you guys think of the call? VIllain 50/24/8.3 AF of 4.0 over 208 hands.

Depends if he value jams sets.

I think game theory wise we can't fold this far up in our range.

This is a heavily read-based decision.

As a default vs an unknown at 10NL, I'd be inclined to fold vs this action as it screams value and looks super-strong.

However the stats you posted on this guy do seem to indicate that he might be willing to pull off a big river bluff or make a thin value shove with a worse set, although I would imagine that worse sets might have made themselves known to you at some earlier point in the hand.

You have to make a judgment call if this particular villain is capable of bluff check/raising this river at least 1/3 of the time. Knowing some river aggression stats might help with this judgment but you may not have enough of a sample size to make any river stats relevant with only 208 hands on villain.
