      - yes, fishes would call you down that spot with 9x and Kx hands and since it is hard him to have there better Ax hand- you chop also with AQ, then it is easy valuebet on the river

      I understand that he could call me 9x/Kx but I dont chop with better trips such as AT/AJ/AQ as his kicker is still in the game :)

      Hello jozata,

      As you said yourself villain is a fish then why not bet for value there? You can still bet like 1/2 pot for value from any kind of pairs/PPs. He might still level himself to Call with some PPs/pairs. And he definitely may as well even have there Kx type of hands. Plus if he really goes for a Check/Raise or whatsoever then it doesn't mean that we can't fold the hand.

      Best regards.
