I can put him on:
He may overplay a hand like AJ
so he may have just about everything , i may lose my stack or double up, what is the best thing to do?
A Draw - GOOD
Two Pair - BAD
A Set (Trips is 2 of the 3 on the board) - BAD
Slow playing over pair - GREAT
Check-Raise Bluff - GREAT
TPTK - GREAT
Now do the math - you are certainly not going to fold are you. You have to decide if villain is capable of making this bet on a nut draw like 9Th or Axh. If not you can maybe eliminate that possible outcome. What is the most likely of the above? Is two pair on that board likely for this guy? If not you can all but eliminate that as one of the bad outcomes.
This is where you need to slow everything down and summon everything you have witnessed and observed about this guy.
Call or Raise? That is the question and I could see either depending on the above.
