      What is his likely holding in this spot. I personally put him on a busted straight draw when he shoved the river, because not much else makes sense.

      QJ wouldn't ck/r flop and then ck/ca turn after turning a full house

      Q6, J6 are unlikely anyway

      all sets would ck/r turn after ck/r flop, because they turned a full house as well

      AK or T9 because he might think on the flop he can win the pot by ck/r and then on the turn realises that he can't therefore ck/ca and on river turns the hand into a bluff

      Hello BrinkyBill,

      Preflop: Raise 4xBB on those limits rather than 3x. So you will get a lot more value with your strong hands.
      Postflop: Why should he Check/Raise with draw on flop? While he just gets great odds for a draw Call there. He basically has a very strong hand there more often therefore I'd Bet/Fold the flop. And a set of 66 is possible as well on flop and of course QJ and so on which easily beat us.

      Best regards.
