      Not cbetting flop is fine, I doubt we are going to take this down often enough against two opps.

      I'd raise more on the turn, because he may have a worse hand here and there are still some nasty cards that could ruin our hand.

      Against shove it's tough. Paired board often smells like trouble. The more reg he is, the more you are beat. Fish may shove worse (like 9x/Kx) here, but usually I'd just fold, because I wouldn't count on him shoving plain 9x/Kx here, but he still has a lot of better hands in his range.

      Good luck!
