      There's about 6 combo's that beat you, while there's 15 combo's of flopped sets and top two. Maybe he can have A4s too.

      I think it's a clear shove.

      I´m fine shoving there J high flush+, but just with 9 high flush I think call is better, since his turn bet was smt like he was on the draw and now he bets quite big on the river when draw completed. Don´t think he is making these play too many times with sets or two pair hands. Rather he is betting there 5-6$, so you should be against flush and if you´re against flush you´re not ahead 50% to shove river profitably
