      Without reads no idea, I could see myself doing all 3 things on the river.

      Some regs are aggressive enough in blind battles that they'll actually 3 barrel that without realizing the 9 river card should hit your range damn hard, so calling can be fine against them.

      Against the better hand readers we might actually be able to take them off QQ+/maybe 7x by shoving that river, but that's just not how you want to approach nl5 in general, because people suck at folding big hands.

      I'd still say the standard is folding tho, you don't encounter 3 barreling villains too often and the only hand we possibly beat on the river is TT, while his line fits QQ+ very well and sometimes he could show up with 7/9x as well.

      Hope it helps.
