      I have gotten into this spot alot where I bet flop and get check/shoved on turn vs random players in this case a fish.

      Not really sure what to do here.

      Easy fold.

      You value bet until you get raised then you reconsider the strength of your one pair hands. The common fish are quite passive so they only raise with strong hands. Furthermore, if you only beat 1-2 hands in their range you still cannot get it all in, you need to beat ENOUGH hands based on pot odds.

      Here he got there with 86, 79, 99, K9, maybe 95 in his range as well. Then he can have sets and 2 pairs from the flop that didn't raise but now with a flushdraw and more straight draws wants to get it in asap.
