      I like your line if he can get curious on the river thinking trips A are rare, but i think the river is a fold as played, i doubt a 9/7 will shove worse trips there with a 4-straight on board since your line clearly states you have trips A at worse. He won't even have trips A himself that often, if he had AJ-AK he'd have bet the flop, A2/A5 beat you, A6-A9 he might c-bet too to begin with and he's tight enough to often worry that you have him outkicked and just call.

      Hope it helps.
