      Have I overplayed my hand on the river in this spot ?

      Since he has some weird stack size I assumed that he is fish and is capable of calling with Jx kind of hands. Neither I don´t think he is playing a set that way since the board is very drawy and also what kind of sets could he has ?? (TT,KK or JJ he will very likely raise preflop) 22 is not very possible either, he wouldn´t call with it on the flop.

      On the river maybe JT or something similar could be possible.

      So the question I am basically asking is: Am I raising for value on the river or should I just call ?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello acceleration123,

      While I still see fishes even limping those hands like KJ/JT and maybe even sometimes play passively then shipping the river is kinda close. I guess only hand what we beat there is like Jx which would Call our all-in. Of course it depends on a fish but more often I take into account some basic fish. And therefore I might even prefer just to Call it while it's just a freeplay pot.

      Best regards.
