      I think I could see myself do pretty much anything except bet/fold on the turn, there is just way too much money at that point for us to give it up getting a zillion to one odds.

      If we don't bet he'll check behind the hands we beat and he shouldn't really have many hands to bluff with unless he somehow peeled 2 streets with a gutshot like 76 or picked up a backdoor heart draw with his overcards, so I don't really like check/calling. Check/folding is probably a little better since he can't bluff often and he likely won't valuebet a worse hand than ours. That said I'm not really comfortable with that either.

      Most likely I would just jam myself and hope he doesn't believe me with 9x/TT-JJ. It's hard for him to have a K unless he had K9 or floated the flop with bare overcards, and 5x isn't likely either.

      Hope it helps.
