      I'd likely raise preflop and then as played still take a stab somewhere along the way given the pretty dry texture.

      As played on the river hard to say, he's a fish he could have slowplayed anything like that. The looser he is the more often he'll show 6x that hopefully didn't boat up. QQ/66 are very unlikely, 88/99 might play like that too if he barely ever open raises, JT is in his range, if he's very loose Q6/Q8/Q9/86/96 and all the other boats are in his range too. I still thinks it's worth a 3bet for value, but if he had jammed i likely would have folded at that point. He 4bet smallish so i guess calling is okay.

      Hope it helps.
