We can bet 9 high but betting TP just makes no sense.
But what % of the time do you think he has us beat? I would guess around 75% of the time. Checking behind is good if you think you are winning half the time, or you just don't want to risk losing more ever and so you are just giving up. If you bet, I think he could fold hands like AK, AQ, A4, A5, A6, as well as those hands we have beat. That check on the river could mean he is doubting his hand strength.
This hand really doesn't matter to me though because I would have folded the turn. I think everyone should fold the turn, but if you aren't you have to be prepared to fire the river.
