      villain playing 27/0 over 10 hands up until this point

      flop i check mw, as i cannot see any value in betting my hand.
      turn and river i think i have value vs presumable fish, however it is somewhat thin....

      I agree with preflop/flop/turn play.
      On the river I'd rather skip valuebet and take a free showdown.
      He could call with worse Qx, maybe lower pockets sometimes, but we dont know him enough for such thin moves, and Jx are definitely in his coldcalling range.

      im not sure why villain wouldn't call turn w 88, especially one that is a fish and probably cannot hand read very well.
      when i fail to cbet flop he can easily put me on AK and call 1 if not 2 streets, although on river i bet too big for a second call from small pairs.

      Hello yougotfelted51,

      Not sure if we are able to squeeze a lot from the fish there. Though depends of course what kind of fish cause we can't obviously exclude some of the Qx combos from his range. But if they are calling you down as long it's ZOOM? :) Really hard question, normal tables they are more likely willing to call.

      So whatever you pick shouldn't be a huge mistake, your own feeling has to be the answer to it. :D

      Best Regards.

      I suppose we are check/calling this flop vs a normal sized bet?

      Most likely yes.
