      Opponent seems solid. On the river I figure he might have me beat, then again by raising I could get value from weaker straight... Can I raise here? And can I call the shove?

      overbets are more often nuts than just some bluffs or trips, so I would prefer rather calling
      He sometimes have there Tx, but also you may sometimes see slowplayed boat, so imo you´re not ahead 50% of times to raise river for value and once you raise you likely can´t fold to shove
