      I wanted to Bet/Fold river but then I suddenly reconsidered due to villain being 38/29 with 35% river aggression. I thought "Heh, he could be doing this with AK or Qx for value folding would be stupid".

      Now I reconsidered his range and I think that most of his raising range on the river will just be the passively played set or QK, Q9 or maybe Q7 to Full-House so it should have been an easy fold. Even this guy wouldn't call a naked Q two streets.

      I got deceived by the stats into making the wrong decision damn it! Sometimes I think I would play better without them.

      You have to call 9 to win 43 so you need a little over 20% equity to call - you have to answer yourself if he's raising you with worse on the river once in six times.

      If he's that aggressive a check/call might also be the option here.

      I would not bet/fold river with straight, since he has to have there 77/99 or KQ, but I think 38/29 has a lot wider river raising range and also you might even see there sometimes some bluffs, so imo it is easy call
