Game is 1/2 no max., only limit at this venue. Eff. stacks are approx. 900.
Villain is one of the better players there. Definitely winning player overall at this level, plays TAG, understands position, pays attention to board texture. However, he's not very creative / doesn't change his lines at all, and doesn't adjust to his opponents. We have played before multiple times, he knows I am a thinking player, probably views me as loose pre, aggressive and maybe a bit unconventional post. Has seen me play higher.
Villain raises to 16 from LP over one limper, I call with 5d5h from the blinds, limper calls. (16 is his opening size from LP vs loose passive opponents, his range is all unpaired high card hands, and 88+.
Flop comes Qc9c6c, it gets checked through.
So, I know he doesn't have an overpair, Qx, sets/two pair, AcXc. He would cbet these hands 100%.
Turn is the Th.
I check, limper check, villain bets 40, hero raises to 120, limper folds, villain thinks a bit and calls.
River is a blank.
Hero opens to 8 from EP with Jh9h. Folds to villain on button who calls. Blinds fold.
Flop (20) comes 987dd. Hero checks (I was thinking that villain is so straightforward that misrepresenting my hand might make it more profitable vs. him. If I check-call, he can put me on a flush draw type hand).
Villain bets 12, hero calls.
Turn (44) is 5c.
Hero checks, Villain bets 36, Hero calls. (I thought since I chose to underrepresent my hand, I have to call.)
River (116) is 9s
Hero bets 70.
Thoughts on all streets appreciated.
