      Opponent is a totally unreasonable fish although he doesnt raise much preflop and his minraise should indicate a strong hand. However i dont see much sense on his overbet on the flop. I think if i had AK or if turn wasnt a spade i would have pushed all in but i decided to fold here. The hand doesnt make much sense to me though. He could have KK/QQ but then why would he lead again on the turn ? His AF was rather low as well.

      The only reasonable hand I would put him on that beats you is AK. Minraising pre and then leading out strong to protect against draws is such a common line for a fish.

      When the draw arrives on the turn, he makes this scared bet. I think I would call here again one time, but I'm a station and I know that I will make 2pair on the river ^^

      I would call once more on the turn, to see what he does on the river. The overbet on the flop could mean a number of things considering he isnt aggressive. Maybe he is overplaying QQ or KK, your read on him says he is a fish, but the likely hand you fear is AK and he could have it. Worse than that he has 2 pair or a set which is also likely, so folding the turn isnt so bad. There is a flush on the board so you could consider bluffing this one down.

      pls post your own stacksize.

      I would call the turn and fold to a river push.
