      I had no stats on villain. On the river i think he has rarely has a 9 as he showed no aggression on the flop or turn, and surely he would want to defend against hands like JT. Also, he shows no aggression then bets quite big, and i can't see what hand he is trying to get value from if he has a 9. I figure he has a busted draw so i called. ok?

      I would call it if I have any reason to believe he's aggro and may bluff. He's betting rather big and he definitely has 9 in his range and he doesn't need any special hand to get value from, he bets because it's his last chance to do it. :) Against unknown I would fold it as there are almost no hands we beat here and he called flop with.

      I think you played your hand very standard to me and I´d also call river
      His range has enough missed draws and lower pp-s that me might take that line with

      I'd bet turn to make my life easy, and bet small also.

      Say I bet 30 cents and he raises me - I'm out. Yeah, he might make a move here and there, but it's pretty clear that after c/c flop and c/r turn he's got the 9 way more often.

      If he just calls I'm always checking behind (even 8T beats me and calls me) and I might call if bet into, depending on the size. If it's big it's clear he was just lurking in there with the 9, otherwise it may be a blocking bet. The funny thing is that the blocking bet might be made with a better 8 :)

      So bet small and fold to a raise on the turn, check behind river if given the chance or evaluate betsize if not.

      As played I'm leaning towards a fold, but it's close..
