      On flop I call counting on his aggro play, but he checks turn, so I take the initiative.
      Xyr call on turn is a bit weird but not too much.
      Despite the T closing J9 I don't see him having it.
      So I bet again.
      River, I simply didn't see anything worse on river raising me like that, as simple as that.
      I saw it as a QQ or maybe TT, and then all the bluffs.

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      Preflop call is just about ok, but I wouldn't make it 100bb, only with the stack size you have.

      I think flatting the flop is fine, it doesn't hit is range that hard. He does have high cbet/barrel stats too, so let him barrel.

      When he checks, betting for value on the turn is fine. Usually villain doesn't have much so there is no need to bet too big.

      As unlikely as it is that villain has a hand on river, I think folding to c/r is the best option. Probably he has QQ/TT maybe sometimes J9s or 56s.

      After xyr call on turn, indicating xe has a hand, is it reasonable just to check behind?

      Given the absolute strength of your hand I think you should always bet for value. Something like QT or strangely played Qx might call. JJ maybe, tricky AA/KK.

      If you feel value is thin, then bet smaller, but I'd definitely bet.
