      With so many callers probability that someone has a nine is just so big. So I cbet small no reason to make it big. Turn is ugly, even if a villain(more or less on a nitty side) continued with a T he just got there and a chb from him indicates just that.
      River is another shit card, if he continued with a draw he just got there, even if he continued with smaller pockets, with 88 he got there. Basically I am beating only pp from 22-77, which I doubt he would play so aggro, his bluffs, and JJ and QQ. These last two are the only thing keeping me thinking about the call.

      Well i'd probably called here. The fact is your line is very weak after checking the turn and the river. He either has a 9 or you've got him beat. He might even value bet an A on that board. And he bets the river pretty small, just over 1/2 pot so you get pretty good odds and i think if his got the nuts here his betting bigger, and probably betting turn as well.

      9x is possible there, also Tx, but I think players would also call once with 88 and smaller pp-s and JT/8J to hit straight
      Since you beat quite a lot of his flatting range on the flop I think I´d call river
