      I thought a deep stack isn't a fish, so he may be able to hold straight.

      Or should I bet on river ?

      Hello newsat,

      I'd just Bet bigger on every street and ship it on river, there are still a lot of hands which may pay us off a lot, and as you saying he is a fish, he could easily Call there with any kind of Tx, sometimes maybe even with weaker pair. But of course against some regular just Checking behind is totally fine. Nice hand! I don't mind the Check behind at all, sometimes even safer.

      Best regards.
