Gildwulf,
What worse hands do you expect him to bet-call on the river here?

I don't see a TAG donking this river with AJ, so I think I'm just peeling. I dont know of any worse hands that are bet/calling us here.

Probably just KQ...I was more thinking I could get him to fold hands like TJ or QJ. I am also obviously folding to a raise here.

I wouldn't raise the flop or the river. The flop raise rarely cleans up your outs but it's not worth the extra cost and risk, IMO. I don't think you're getting called enough by worse hands on the river, but it's decently close. He could have an oddly played KQ.

If he has Two pair, I don't think there's any chance he made it on the flop or the turn. His line is LEAST indicative of a two pair.

I would just call the river. His play is odd.

Yeah, KQ is a possibility; I don't think his play is really consistent with TJ/QJ tho?

It's hard to put him on a range of hands here; it looks like a gutsy wa/wb of some sort, but why wouldn't he realize that he's pretty toast against most of your hand range? Without one of the several monsters on the board, he's a huge dog to your 88-AA, AK, KQ, AQ, AJish range. If he's smart enough to realize what sort of shape his hand is in, I think I'd rather just call.

Dont like the river raise. The flush is unlikely since its a runner runner but any 9 now beats you and J9,T9,Q9 are all possible holdings as well as some 2 pair hands.

Ill just cal the river, pot is too big to fold
