      Hey Z,

      If villain checks you should value shove the river. His calling range will include 9x a lot, TT, JJ, some of the 55-88 combos as well. Apart from that, better hands don't check/call turn and check river often enough. They usually check/raise the turn or play like he did.

      That means, I'd usually say his range is flushes and full houses.. It's close whether to call or not. You have a strong hand so if he does it with a few 9x you have to call. I think both options are fine: call or fold. Though he is definitely stronger when shoving than when he checks. You also have to keep in mind you need to win <33% of the time to correctly call.
