      Against a more fishy player I'd just bet huge on the turn, he won't fold a J ever and the 9 turn brought in a bunch of draws that he would talk himself into calling again with no matter the sizing.

      Against him I think he can actually fold a J to a river if you make it huge on both streets and/or find a fold on the turn with weakish pair+draw hands if he doesn't get decent odds, so I don't mind you going with the smaller bet.

      When he check/raises you, either he's actually fishy enough to go nuts with a combo hand there (which even if he has, he still has a ton of equity), or he's not and you're way behind. To me it's a fold more often than not against a guy with those stats that scream "I just like to play speculative hands even tho I'm tight as hell".

      Hope it helps.
