Two pair what to do?

V (SB) 230 BB
H (BB) 110 BB
No info on V but has stats of 24/16 through 65 hands
Hero :5d:6h

Preflop: V (SB) completes, H checks

Flop: $.50

V bets $.25
H calls

Turn: $1
V bets $.63
H raises $2
V 3 bets $6.11
H calls $4.11
I raised turn for V to pay for his draw.
When V 3 bets I think of the following:
1. V has 7 8 for the straight and protecting against Hero's flush draws
2. V has top pair or two pair himself and is protecting against Hero's draws.
3. V is semi-bluffing with ie: :7c:9c
I elect to call because my hand is semi disguised. If V does have top pair and thinks I have a draw and the river is a blank. Hero can get value for two pair because of V thinking of Hero's missed draws.

After the hand I'm thinking I should've folded in this spot because there is a lot of bad river cards that could've came rather than not.

River $13.22
V bets $8.37

    I wouldn't put any Kx TP hands in a turn bet/3-bet range from a ABC-TAGish player. Nor too many semibluffs. We're probably at bottom of villains range and can fold the turn after getting raised. I'm guessing he's bet/folding most Kx on the turn, but because it's BvB he could be 2-barelling a good # of FD, but his range is skewed towards Kx, and has a fair # of better 2pr & straights in it (that won't fold), so not sure your turn raise is accomplishing as much as you think. I lean toward calling turn and hoping for a good run out so I can extract one more street of value on the river.

    Hope that helps.
