should I find a fold here? It really looks like a flush, and chances are it's not 9 high. It looks like a good value bet otr, idk if he would bluff there often.
no reads on the villain

Readless you should 3b the turn and get it in.

If he does have a flush, so be it. It's very rare and at these stakes and they can still turn up with sets & straights. You'll be losing money not fastplaying in these types of scenarios.

As played, calling the river is fine. No value in raising.

Hi Pray,

I agree, our hand is way too strong to fold without any reads, I would expect the generic villain to have a turn check-raising range of 2 pair+, with maybe some overpairs that were playing in an unconventional way and have turned a spade draw.

I would reraise the turn planning to get it in, so many bad river cards for his 2 pair and set holdings can come on the river to kill our action.

As played I also agree with just calling the river.
