      I was having an aggro image at the table at the time of the hand. I saw high WTSD (though I guess it doesn't really matter since he has good w$sd) and I thought that I would not be representing that many strong hands with a shove which could make him call with a lot of his bluff catchers.

      It worked this time, but what do you think about my play?

      My calculations with these assumptions:
      Range on the river
      JJ, 99, ATs, KTs, QTs+, J9s+, T9s, 98s (40)

      Calling 13.5 $ bet
      JJ, 99, ATs, KTs, QTs+, J9s+, T9s, 98s (36)

      Calling shvoe 43$
      JJ, Ats (10 combos)

      A reg will be able to fold one pair there. What you want here is to cooler all 9x instantly and whether or not you get more from weaker hands will not matter usually. If they have J9 in your spot and bet 14, you call with 9x all the time. Easy decision, you lose little. If they have 9x they call 43 just about always so they lose almost 30 everytime this situation happens. It's a cooler since nobody is folding but the amount of money that goes in is different.
