      villain vpip/pfr 20/17 103 hands.
      dont have any reliable post flop sample or anything that sticks out.

      is the river call okay i thought there could be a lot of missed draws.
      or should i be more carefull since i dont know how he plays postflop im not sure how much the average oppenent bluffs here.

      Hey,

      Your play makes sense but you need to have an idea of how CO plays his range here. Does he raise better earlier? Does he play his draws passively?

      Usually you want him to be polarized on river and at the same time capped with a high betting frequency. If he is capped he almost never has you beat unless the river helped him (89s in this case) because he raises better hands than your earlier. In some cases, they can have QQ+ in their range from preflop but that's not super often.

      Finally, the final consideration is your own range. If you want to barrel overs and flushdraws a lot here, you can think of including AJ in your value range.
