      Villain seems to be a nit (not enough sample, just 42 hands).

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      Hero (BTN): 100 BB
      SB: 104.4 BB (VPIP: 11.35, PFR: 6.38, 3Bet Preflop: 1.61, Hands: 146)
      BB: 101.4 BB (VPIP: 9.52, PFR: 9.52, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 42)
      UTG: 124.8 BB (VPIP: 21.19, PFR: 16.36, 3Bet Preflop: 9.35, Hands: 280)
      MP: 93 BB (VPIP: 58.33, PFR: 16.67, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 12)
      CO: 172 BB (VPIP: 12.82, PFR: 10.26, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 40)

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has J:heart: T:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (4.4 BB, 2 players) 8:diamond: 7:diamond: 9:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 3.4 BB, BB calls 3.4 BB

      Turn: (11.2 BB, 2 players) 6:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 17 BB, BB calls 17 BB

      River: (45.2 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      BB bets 79 BB and is all-in,

      Hero calls 77.6 BB and is all-in

      BB shows 9:heart: T:club: (Straight, Ten High)
      (Pre 26%, Flop 9%, Turn 3%)
      Hero shows J:heart: T:heart: (Straight, Queen High)
      (Pre 74%, Flop 91%, Turn 97%)
      Hero wins 192 BB

      I don’t think a nit would call to often an over bet with a flush draw on the turn and that makes it tough to fold with the best straight combination possible.

      Yeah. The only FD hands I see him continuing OTT are JdTd (which are blocking quite a bit), Td9d and KdTd. That makes it hard to fold the best possible straight. I’d call too.

      Yeah, I think you should call here too. Not entirely sure why you overbet the pot on the turn though.

      This line is often strong and his bet sizing is quite big. It is close but I think calling should be ok. Even though this line is often used with very strong hands, for some reason it is quite common for these players to donk something like a set OTR when flush hits.. I don't know why but I have seen it a lot.
