      You should bet 4xbb first in, especially from UTG+1. But this is a tough hand...I would probably bet just over half pot on river as a value bet so worse hands would call. I think his shove on the river is a tough call, but still I would call it because his shove could represent another set or 2pair, although a straight seems more likely.
      You should take notes about his play for the future if you ever play on the same table again though.

      Preflop: Please make it x4BB. Raising bigger or smaller can reveal the strength of your hand.

      Flop & Turn are good.

      River: Can't give this guy credit for 89 cause he is playing pretty tight. The only hand the beats you here is KQ which is a cooler. He can shove with a lower set or worse.

      Bottom Line: I'm going broke.

      I shove river after his raise, only 89 and KQ beats you and you beat so many hands it makes my head hurt.
      He probably slowplayed a set or is bluffing the A.

      Bottom line: If you play cautiously fearing he has the nuts all the time, you will lose a a ton of value in the long run and save a small amount when he actually does have the nuts.
