      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 194 BB (VPIP: 22.89, PFR: 20.48, 3Bet Preflop: 10.34, Hands: 83)
      Hero (CO): 136.94 BB
      BTN: 101.5 BB (VPIP: 24.32, PFR: 20.69, 3Bet Preflop: 8.11, Hands: 1,219)
      SB: 201.26 BB (VPIP: 21.93, PFR: 18.22, 3Bet Preflop: 1.96, Hands: 278)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: A:spade:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BB raises to 9 BB, Hero calls 6 BB

      Flop: (18.5 BB, 2 players) 2:spade: 3:club: 8:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 11 BB, BB calls 11 BB

      Turn: (40.5 BB, 2 players) 7:heart:
      BB bets 13 BB, Hero calls 13 BB

      River: (66.5 BB, 2 players) 9:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 33.24 BB, fold

      When he checks flop I put him on AQ+ (so mostly air) and also when he calls. When he donks turn I see it as total bluff because it doesnt make sense to do it with value hand. On river I would probably shove if he bets again 1/2. I am not sure if it is too spewy when I think he is bluffing.

      I like it! You also block 3 AA combos so his FPS overpair range decreases, he makes no sense for value and most importantly, you make a lot of sense for value like this. Given how weak his range is, I also think you don't have to shove against a river bet though. His range will be air heavy like you said, and depending on sizing, you can just make a minraise + a few bb and fold to a shove. You have the same FE and risk less, your EV should be higher like that.
