      This guy calls a raise out of position and then mindonks the flop. Right away I usually assume 2 things when people do this:

      He is an idiot or some kind of fish
      He is weak and wants a cheap turn card

      I would barrel the turn here since it completes no draws. As played the river is tough. As I said I think hes your typical idiot and without reads I would make some assumptions typical to idiots

      They play hit or fold more and bluff less
      They become passive in the face of a big raise unless they have THE NUTS

      He is representing a flush and a flush only. Against an any 2 range of flushes you have enough equity to call but not raise. If this turn card was the A or 9 of spades I would raise because he could pay you off with QT.

      I disagree with the previous poster, because the flush is a backdoor flush. More often than never, those fish also donk/call monsters like KK/JJ/KJ in this spot, so for me, this river is an easy all-in.

      if you think you have any fold equity against Jx or draws then you should b/f turn, because your T high doesn´t win showdown too often
      raise/call is fine on the river. he can play worse hands the same way
