      He is fish and I bet turn with gutshot and overcards, plus if 9 comes I am ahead of PP.
      I think I should play river check/call, since he can call with better my shove, but probably he would shove himself PP less than 99.

      Hi,

      Interesting spot.

      How often do you think he slowplays T9 here? What range do you give him and what do you think he folds on the river?

      I think he slowplays Tx, 99 each time because there is no nead to grow the pot or to protect the hand, and he is IP.
      He could call flop and turn with JJ or even QQ, probably he doesnt 4bet it because his 3bet is 4.71 only. JJ, QQ hand he probably calls on river except he is very nitty. He could also call with 88,77 and weaker, also JQs 87s some of the time, and since he is fish he could have Q8s and similar gutshots.
      So I think if I bet river all those worse fold, and better call. But if I check/call river probably small PP, and missed draws shove and I win.

      OK, sounds good.. One more question about river. Do you expect him to value bet like a backdoor flush or JJ, QQ?, maybe 9x? You obviously have a rational thought process so there is not that much to discuss, unless I strongly disagree with your assumptions but in this case I don't.. On the river I have some doubts but it makes sense to check/call since he should be quite polarised and probably not bet less than a FH imo anyway.

      I agree, he should not bet JJ, QQ even KK, or flush becase he could still be afraid that I have fh, or AA.

      Cool, in that case check/calling is definitely an option. You get good odds and if his range is only slowplayed Tx and underpairs you might get good enough odds. It will depend on how many pairs he has starting from preflop which is hard to actually pint point but if you play the same game with the same people over and over you will get an idea so I agree with it beinga good spot to bluffcatch with your A high.
