Hero has an aggressive winning image. Both opponents are level 1 thinkers, loose pre-flop, and generally straightforward post flop. HJ is fairly weak tight.

    Check. Trying to get level 1 thinkers to fold boats is obviously not gonna happen, and turning your hand into a bluff targets specifically TT/JJ/QQ/KK which there just aren't that many combos that are going to continue on the turn since their sidecards would have to be relevant as well. 5xxx is a tossup

    ^ I agree that I don't think they would ever fold a boat. However, I guess I'm wondering how many boats do they have in there range on this river. I would expect a set to have raised earlier in the hand. But, two pair with a 5 that made a boat is a def possibility.

    Meanwhile, I've been aggressive the entire hand, and while they arent doing range analysis, they should notice that.

    I don't know, I think A9 has enough showdown value that you don't need to turn it into a bluff. You're never getting trip 5s to fold, and other than that, A9 is pretty much the nuts.

    What do you think about a small bet, like 1/3 pot sized, to squeak out value from worse 9's?

    i don't really think you can triple barrel into 2 players on a straight-possible board to hope to get called by top pair
