if you hit, you're on a draw so its convenient for you to keep him in, you get to have a bigger pot w/o putting in extra money. I like the smooth call in these conditions.
River brought a 3rd spade and although you lose value by just calling and not raising I think I just call here, but wouldn't argue the raise to $9. You shouldn't shove or else he'll call only if you're beat, I would think.
