      Bet more flop, raise more turn (potsize), I would call river: you have top set, so you beat any other set. Ofcourse he could have 9 but I think he has there often some random type hand.

      This. Against a complete unknown who's unmistakably bad given his line, without a read that he only shoves the mortal nuts, you have to call there since he could just be going insane with a busted draw as a bluff or be doing that for value with another set or two pairs.

      A 9 is hard for him to have even if he's bad, but you'd be a lot more confident if you had bet/raised bigger earlier as kosmonaut111 suggested, since then it would be less likely for him to have peeled twice with something like T9.


      Hope it helps.
