One of the tells was villain's instant check behind OTF.
I didn't find so much value-hands in villain's range (I block 99/K9 and unblock draws).
On the one hand, maybe he attacked my capped range with some sorts of draws when he saw me checking twice.
On the other hand, why did he check back the draw and made in bluff two bets OTT and OTR?
Also, that was multiway pot, and we should give more credits to his bet OTT and overbet jam OTR.

Can we find a herocall here against decent aggressive reg?
And if not, should we fold already OTT?

Thanks for your replies, I appreciate all of them <3

On the flop the check line is correct. Ranks V contain a proportional variety of hands. So we want V1 and V2 to keep all their bluffs in this place. We are also super deep in 3WP, so extracting value here does not imply the maximum EV for this hand, since we will get little fold equity for this flop texture.
On the turn I like the x / r line as we are outmatched by villain MP's semibluffs. Many times we will represent JT; QT; AT and we want to get value from A-Q; A-8; Q-J, as these hands have negative implicit equity for us.
On the other hand, we also want to knock down the BB since we have the way to do it, because now this player can give up more often the dominated hands he has (for example, low pockets).
As played simply surrender on the river. The 8s reaches more the V range than ours. In fact some random combinations that V was able to open include hands like K8; 6-7; K-6.
Greetings.

I think you're looking at a weak K, like KT-KQ (you block KT), the miracle 67, 89 (which you also block) or air. 67s makes the most sense. If a guy is this aggressive, then he must understand capped ranges in this spot, and so I don't hate a river call.

Hi, here I fold the villain is aggressive and that's why the check on the flop makes me think he has a good hand, I think I would have folded and waited for the next

I'd fold preflop, personally I don't like playing aggressive players from the SB with a suited connector like this, its looks pretty but is going to flop a lot of 2nd pairs and draws and be a difficult spot to play oop.
As played with an AF of 5 and checks on the flop a call will pick up more bluffs than usual.
