      Villian is a 36/17 fish. His turn bet got me all confused. I bet the river with my 2pair but facing a shove on a flush complete board, I do not know.. However, his stats shows that he is quite aggressive post flop. Did not see a river c/r by him before(only had 55 hands) so I just folded.

      Against a fish I would like raising his donkbet on flop, cause he will call with all the 9x, probabbly with 66,77,88 and some straightdraws.

      As played I would valubet less on river just cause I expect him to be giving up a lot when checking the river. And I would also fold to his shove. You only beat his maybe overplayed 2pair, I think he has some 93,53,34 or some backdoored flush.

      I don't think villain is check/ shoving as a bluff here or with a worse value hand, I rather think he has some random 3x or backdoor flush, even though they are not so many combos I don't see any other hands in his range.

      Good fold imo.

      also I think if you call flop you can raise turn for value with tptk for protection and value.
      Without any reads I would also b/f river.

      Agree with raising turn and playing for stacks if he wants to.
