      River: ($14.61) A (0 players)
      Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $10.73.

      Villain is some random shortie. Call flop? Call turn? Is he doing this with draws or a 9 often enough for a call to be profitable? And if I call flop, and a flush hits and he shoves; what to do?

      with pair I´d prefer shoving flop
      He´d still b/c his draws, 9x hands, maybe 77-88
      And I doubt he is pure bluffing on that board or if he is, then you also don´t mind if you take pot down, since likely he has some outs against you
