Your preflop raise makes me think you are thinking "In a three-way, I have cards that may win, at least one is J+, but not J+/ utter rag. And there will be no limping when I have the button."
The flop bet says "My hopes are still alive. I got a piece of that. Not a lot, but something."
At this point, I (CO) believe I'm at least as good as you, or I have outs, and have called, but I know very little about your hand, so on the bricked turn i put out a little 250 feeler just to see what you do.
Pot is 925.
You bet 850. You almost pot it! Why, I wonder..
Do you think I can call that big of a bet? Are you putting me on Ax? No. You know that I would have at least bet something postflop (or c/r) with an A. Do you think I have maybe JJ-QQ-KK? No. Nobody limps those..
You can't believe I slowplayed a 9... or can you? Well, if you are on the diamond draw, you might semi-bluff here against a possible set, not caring if I fold since your hand is not made yet, while knowing I can't fold a 9 which you might improve to beat... and a 9 can't really raise either.
You're thinking that if I don't have an A or 9, you are most likely not gonna get any more chips from me, so you might as well end it here.
OTOH, If you had a set with like K9o, you'd probably call my 250 and let me lead the river. (I could continue this for a while.. Thus the long tank after your bet)
And then the flush comes in, and your strong aggression makes a river check sensible whether I beat a flush or not.
