      limper is 20/7 small sample. obv a fish.
      is it standard to iso this hand? I would definitely iso A9o, but i figure A9s plays better multi-way so i dont mind the BB coming along (not sure if thats correct thinking?)

      flop is so dry i figure fish limp weak aces here a lot so ill just c/c.
      same reasoning on the turn. hes always barreling A5-A8 so im only really worried about 44/22.

      river i want to value-bet rather than let him check behind with his A5-A8.
      obv im not happy when he ships, but is this ok?

      raise pre better?

      strange that yo´re fine raising pre A9o, but prefer limping with A9s. d also isolate with A9s, since you really don´t want BB to enter pot for free and then for example hit two pair against your top pair hand
      Postflop play seems fine. Since he seems strong you can also c/rai river top let him bluff worse hands

      Why exactly are you not betting out on the flop?

      to induce bet from worse hands that has close to 0 equity and not really sure if we want to play stacks on that flop, so turning tp into bluff catcher seems fine to me.
