      It's pretty sickening but you probably did take the right line here. Not many hands are going to take villain's line as a pure bluff in my opinion, usually when people push all in on the river after calling two streets it's a missed draw turned into a bluff or a slowplayed monster. There are no missed draws (67 got there too) and you don't beat slowplayed monsters, so the fold is right.

      If you think he's a bit of a fan of bluffing you could block bet here to try and put him off.

      Agreed, except for the blockbet part unless you make it ridiculously small. Sometimes even minbetting is enough to prevent some players from bluffing, but it'll encourage others to bluff even more so be careful especially when you don't have much room to bet/fold.

      Hope it helps.
