      Villain is

      Given his like for River Aggression and having seen him raise people on rivers before I elected to Check turn, and Bet/Call River. What do you guys think of this line? Too risky against Draws or good against the amount of air in his range?

      I would raise to 5bb with A9o to be HU postflop for sure especially when BTN plays 46/6, raising lower can lead to ugly spots OOP!

      Postflop I'd bet $2.5 for more value, depending on UTG but I think $2.5 is giving you more value.

      Why do you check the Turn?? You now can get value from random Axs (FDs), Straightdraws that are still hanging on there, random middle pairs, 66-88, overcards, Toppair weaker kickers

      I bet $5.5 there and probably either overbet shove the river on a blank or check/call but I like to know from Kaitz how to play the river as soon as he calls the Turnbarrel (riverpot is then $18, ES $9)

      Oh since ES is $9 then I shove any river pure for value

      with BU be middlestack I think you can bet turn 5$ and shove river
      if you check turn I like b/c river. he should shove enough bluffs and worse hands that you beat
      Also I would b/c turn,s ince he can also shove turn with worse hands than mine
