      Hi,


      I'd be a bit worried after calling the turn that I'm just getting owned by something like TT that is blockbetting all the way, but when he pots the river all those marginal pairs go out the window and he's left with a polarized range comprised of complete spazz bluffs, busted clubs / JT and boats/trips 9. Since your hand equals a good top pair in that spot and villain looks like a steal machine, calling down is fine.

      Note that sometimes villain will still show up with something like 77 that he turned into a bluff for no good reason, which hurts ;)


      Hope it helps.
