      On the turn either shove yourself to stack Jx/flushdraws or check/fold it to any decent bet, I don't think this villain is going to bet big with worse hands than yours when checked to so check/calling is no good. When shoving you're going to run into 9x/two pairs sometimes but that's just how it is.

      As played on the river villain's range likely shifted away from Jx since I don't think he'd bet the river with that unless it's exactly KJ, I'm not even sure he'd bet worse two pairs than that given the board. So I'm guessing it's 9x/AQ with or without some bluffs from busted hearts depending on whether he's ever capable of bluffing with that. Getting 3:1 it's probably a check/call if you think he's ever capable of attempting to bluff there or if you've seen him unexpectedly merge hands like Jx into "thin valuebets" in such spots before, if he's really passive you can probably fold it.

      Hope it helps.
