      Villain was a 52 0 fish. Quite aggressive postflop, with an agg of 4.5. Now that I think of it, not raising was a big mistake. Do you think I should have reraised on turn?

      Did you not raise because you we're trapping or because you we're scared of a boat? Against a fish you pretty much have to stack off here considering you got a pretty good kicker with your 9 and sometimes he does something stupid with his AA or 66 or w/e he played that way. You also get value from his flushdraws that his probably not folding on paired boards.

      Since I´m not really comfortable playing there for stacks, since he can have there easily K9, A9 or 44/22, sometimes even 94s, 92s I think I would also b/c turn and b/c river

      You don't stack off in this spot against a fish? Yeah he does have K9, A9 and boats, But he also has probably J9-69 so there's still many 9s you beat and if you he sometimes has 92 then he also has 95 and 93 sometimes and a fish like that plays any trips the same way.

      with A9 I´d 3-bet turn and play for stacks, but with Q9: sure he can have there worse 9x hands, but also he would play the same way better 9x hands
      Against one of his possible range we´re slight favorite:

      board: 9c4c9d2h
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      Qh9s 54.18% 734 296
      A9, K9, Q9, J9, T9, 98, 97, 96s, 95s, 94s, 93s, 92s, 44, 22 45.82% 598 296

      but do we really expect fish to min-raise turn without trips or boat that we should push our equity that much to play for stacks.
      So on limped pot I´d generally take passive line and either call him down or b/c river is also one good option
