      Not sure what I was thinking otr, trying to get him shove draws maybe, should I be shoving this? i assume he'd shove his 2pairs and overpairs ott. my options are shove and check call?

      he opens about 90% buttons, CBF 38% and fold to river cb 58%.

      notes on him:

      calls 3bet with AA K64dd flop calls cbet Q turn shoves 2x pot when checked to

      calls 4b with TJs

      calls 3b with 52o

      Flop: I think Flop play is certainly fine with Q9+ for thin value since this is Headsup.

      River: Our options are to shove River or c/c River. On a high card like the Ace or Queen, I much prefer shoving cos we are going to get looked up lighter IMO cos those are "obvious" bluff cards.

      Here the pairing of the 7 isn't too bad but it may improve part of villain's range too, like 78 or T7. But overall I still think we should push the River as we are going to get looked up pretty light when both flush draws missed.

      I just think that the EV of value betting thinly vs his weaker bluff catching range > the EV of inducing bluffs from busted draws
