Well I think a lot of draws can be betting small on this turn for a cheap river. If we raise now we allow him to make calling mistakes with draws or Jx. However if we call here we can allow him to play almost perfectly on the river if he hits his draw or bricks so there is less chance of him making a calling mistake OTR.
Hands that might be this turn 9x, Tx with one club, a4, a5 w/ ace of clubs Jx with j of clubs etc. I don't see a lot of made hands wanting to bet here.
Is my thought process going in the right direction?
