      Against fishys I tend to bet 2.4 on the flop turn pot is then 7.65, bet 6ish
      River pot is ~20, his stack is ~12 so shove it then

      Here the K is a bit of a scare card but I think shoving is best. He's probably calling with Jx and folding worse regardless of your betsize.

      sometimes I bet 1c less than their stack. it actually seems to work but there are lots of "seems to's" in poker

      Fish don't really pay attention to bet:potsize ratios so add in a couple of BBs to your std sizings. it'll make a difference longterm

      only hand I see him calling overbet shove is KQ, KJ, KT
      I think he would mostly fold Jx, Tx hands, so I´d go rather 11$ valuebet and call shove than overbet shove
