*sigh* situation OOP w/ overpair

I wanted to post and get feedback on a situation we probably all roll our eyes at........I know (like all spots) that the majority of this line will be player dependent-

--We raise Ah Ac from MP
--Good / thinking opponent calls from LP / BTN

--Heads up and FLOP is Kh 8s Ts

--We Cbet somewhere between 50-70% of pot
--Opponent calls fairly quickly

--TURN is 5s

--We bet out (whatever sizing is fitting)
--Good opponent thinks for close to a minute and puts in a raise

I know there is no standard response here...but @ 5/5 blinds and lower, there are not a ton of really good, thinking players, so I feel like there can be a more "regular" response to a good player in this situation........Obviously depending on stack sizes, gameflow, etc, I know there is nothing wrong with bet / folding here, but it also makes for such a good spot for the good player in position to apply pressure.... Of course our image to the opponent will play a key part in our decision...

I know it's tough to discuss b/c of the variables of different situations, but I am just curious to see what comments people have on getting in this type of spot against a good / aggressive player. I can sometimes go on mini tilt in a spot like this...

Cheers-

Stack sizes matter, but was your plan to b/f turn? If not, you probably should have just c/c down depending on sizing since you have no redraw.

Without better reads it's a standard b/f. If you see him floating and bluffing in spots like this then it's trickier and I would probably c/c.

Everyone has forgotten the Baluga Theorem. If you take an aggressive line pf, flop and turn and the villain raises you, your TP (AA might as well be TP) is no good.
