      I expect you to be beat many times, but I'd probably feel priced in to call his push on the river. I don't really see him having a straight there, but I guess 88-99 are definitely possible, and maybe 89.

      Is it too unlikely that he is raising with a busted FD/OESD here?

      How about 77, T7, 76, 97, 87, maybe even 75. Sure, maybe he folds 77 on the flop, but there's still a bunch of combos. Of course this depends on the player also. Some players won't call offsuited connectors pre-flop and so the number of combos they can have diminishes greatly.

      I don't like giving people credit for bluff raising the river here, until the prove to me that they're capable of that. Most players aren't.

      I'm actually not even betting this river. I think he calls or raise us with too many hands that beat us and doesn't call enough with hands that we beat. I'd just check and consider c/c, since JT and the FD busted. But even that might be too thin of a call, because many busted FD improved into 2P or straight.

      So I'd rather c/f.

      Cheers

      I think c/c is fine on the river, since he can often bet himself with busted draws or worse Ax hands
      b/f is oki, although that is great board to bluff, since you likely kave there Ax and would never b/c river
