      To be honest it's hard to know what to do in a spot like this vs. a fish, because they could do it with AT,AJ,AQ,AK,A6,66,99,96 (all in his limping range lols). If I were you I'd probably do the same and expect to win a lot of the time (A6/96?); but best wait for a professional opinion.

      Hello Kony76,

      Instead of Check/Raising the flop I would just start betting myself. And afterwards it's kinda difficult, especially when we are against fishy player who could end up even there with AK to play this way. Also he has maybe even 96/A6, so I'd also get it in. Without knowing much more it's difficult to get away.

      Best Regards.
