      When the hand happened, the guy was just fresh on the table so i have nth on him

      Eventually I found out he is fish

      I should had just push river if i called, no point to just call right?
      Either push or fold?

      He tanked abit on the river before betting that

      He is auto marked as fish in my eyes since he is not fully stacked. Maybe he could be a MSS reg but they probably rarely call 3b oop when they OR utg.

      Given the fact I stated above I would bet more flop 2/3 psb, to get more value as a fish has a lot of Tx in his range + he is never letting go mid pp on this flop and to prepare a river shove.

      Same as above on turn.

      River is a bit tricky as fish usually donk out rivers when they catch the nuts cuz "they are afraid you will not bet and they lose ~value~". On the other side the bet is signaling blockbet very hard.
      So cuz there are some Tx in his hand and assuming he never calls off a shove w smth like 77-JJ (even QQ maybe in his pf 3b calling range) river call is good.

      If you have no reads against him I would also just call river. He may easily have there slowplayed set or Tx, so I think you can´t really expect to be ahead 50% and also get called by worse hands that you can shove river.
      Also i would never going to fold getting these odds.

      Best regards,
