      IS calling the turn ok here? The straight is quite obvious, but he could have just tried to bluff me, or could have two pair maybe, well i decided to call but i would probably fold to bigger bet on the river, so isnt it pointles to call the turn and then fold the river? I mean if i wouldnt catch the fullhouse

      I think that you can call on the turn for sure because you win money either way:
      1) You are behind on the turn (He has a 9): You certainly have the implied odds to hit the full house/quads

      2) You are ahead on the turn: you can just c/c the river
