      First of i believed his preflop 3b calling range was:AJs+,AQo+,99+
      It turned out his calling range included suited broadways but i did not include these when considering my desisions.
      On the flop i believe he check his entire range without the incetive oop.
      I think about the hands that will call a large value bet($11-!3) and i think they are AA,AK,KK,AsQs,AsJs
      I think about the hands that will call a small value bet ($7-10). i think they are AA-1010,AK,AsQs,As,AsJs. I even think he will sometimes call with AQ or AJ to float. I also believe that he might raise his fd to a small value bet.
      On the turn i believ a b/c is the only option
      Note:I played this hand during a sweat session and both me and my partner were unsure if i played the hand right.

      Yes u are probably right. His calling 3b range consists of JJ+, AJ+. You are therefore good against his range. You need to know which hands he plays passive on flop and turns agro on turn. It is made hands like JJ, QQ and AK with one spade(if he is not on passove side he might just call JJ and QQ) and probably AsJs and AsQs cuz he is affraid of paired board.

      I think overall it is a call(at least equity wise), especially if he is more on a taggish side, against a nit you are probably behind.

      Some players would c/r that board with draws, some would only c/c. I think mostly his range is smt like 99 or Kx. Not really sure if Kx would call you down 3 streets on that board and 99 should fold to the turn barrel
      So instead of b/c turn I think also reasonable is check back and call river bet
      You´re getting value anyway mostly on 2 streets and you don´t get stacked if he has there 8x+
