      This is marked fish, regular fish. Plays 40/13/1/ Calls alot preflop and rarely folds. I have 300 hands with this guy.

      I really doubt i can beat him at this situation with top pair. And i doubt he is so good to bluff here. Please tell me if i miss a value in this hand.PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      I would change turn play - bet $0,55. If he makes a move there we know he has something since calling stations are usually not aggresive. If he only calls he might still have 9x or some draw QJ, J8 or even backdoor FD.

      On river I don't like your 1/2 bet. He's going broke with any T or 9, as you said he's a fish. We don't beat much so there's no point in "value betting" because this is not good spot to do it. I would c and hope he checks back. If he bets we must make a crying fold.

      Yea i realize now that betting river is mistake. But i was afraid that he will for sure bet with any cards if i show so much weakness on turn and on river. It would be like i decided on the turn with my check that i give up and i have overpair.

      Yes but even if he has some PP he's probably not value betting them on this river and he just checks behind. How the board developed our hand is not so strong since we only have 1 overpair.

      Hello dadaas,

      Don't like your line that much. Rather Bet/Fold the turn yourself and maybe even protect from draws than turn your into bluff-catcher and then even donk the river, what's the idea behind it?

      Best Regards.
