A friend and I are having a disagreement about a hand.

It's a HORSE tournament, (limit) holdem round. Blinds are 50-100, your stack is about 5800, and your opponent's stack is about 2250. Most of the field is still in, so there are no bubble/money considerations. Your stack is about 1.5x average.

You're dealt two red aces on the button. The cutoff raises. You three-bet. The small blind caps. The initial raiser wisely folds, and you call.

The flop comes 7s Jh 9s. SB checks to you, you bet, he calls.

The turn is a 3h. He checks to you, you bet, he calls.

The river is a Td. The board is now 7s Jh 9s 3h Td. Assuming you have no intel on this player beyond what's in this description, what do you do?

What do you do on the river?

my thought is that 88 or A8s is pretty likely...

Both are possible, but not likely to result in the above betting pattern, especially pre-flop. And even if the player is known to be a maniac better, the raw odds are on your side to just bet.
