      Notes made on villain prior to this hand -

      capable of big river bluff-raises with flopped MPBK on total blank river (2h on 2-2 black board)
      Will draw at gutshots and hero-shove hit

      Thoughts?

      prefer shoving river
      Don´t think he would definitely turn smt like 77 into bluff if you check to him on the river, but he may always have there some kind of missed flushdraws with KdQd. And he would call your shove likely with JJ-KK and sometimes 77/99 if he doesn´t want to fold these hands on the turn
      So since you would likely not going to c/f and always stack off by better hands, I would prefer shoving myself on put him to the test with his overpairs and maybe also his pair+draw type hands. Tx really doesn´t change that much, since I don´t see any other hand that TT that he might coldcall pf your 3-bet
