      Value shove river?!

      Also, bet bigger on flop and turn to have an easy river shove, not such a big ratio of the pot. Check/folding doesn't make sense, what A does he have in his range? He still calls 9x often, any JT type floats probably still call.

      If you check, I also prefer to call, not fold because he has just about no Ax in his range. Since he is unlikely to turn a medium pair into a bluff I prefer betting but check/folding is just so weak imo, it's like burning money. When he bets, he doesn't bet most Ax in his range anyway, he bets 2 pair+ which is hard to ever have here.
