      if you have seen your opponent play very tricky and c/r on the river with the nuts to play a really huge pot, i would check behind... but your hand is usually to good to check behind... you get value out of any 9 and maybe trips or two pair call you as well... so i think we have a clear value bet here and it just gets ugly if we get c/r

      but the opponent would usually have to be very bad to miss out the own value bet and instead go for a c/r

      +1. Unless you have seen the villain make a completely unreasonable / stupid slowplay before we have an easy big value bet here that will be paid out by any 9, some sets, perhaps even some 2pairs.

      Im betting $6 and sighing if villain shoves. Probably calling as a dumb 9 could play C/R there. If the villain shows a flush, well, you paid $10 for the info that the villain is a complete idiot, so its not a total loss.

      bet/fold is fine on the river
      He should usually lea out with flush, so he likely has there two pair or worse hand
