      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $9.45 (94.5 bb)
      BTN: $10.09 (100.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $11.60 (116 bb)
      BB: $12.41 (124.1 bb) Was loose preflop and had a high fold to C-bet. I had been exploiting him for sometime.
      UTG: $16.94 (169.4 bb)
      MP: $10.42 (104.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 T
      4 folds, Hero completes, BB checks

      I just completed because I had been stealing a lot and making him fold post flop on dry boards and didnt want to make it too obvious.

      Flop: ($0.20) 7 9 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BB raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.40, BB calls $1.00

      Turn: ($3) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, BB calls $3

      River: ($9) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.50, BB raises to $7.91 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.60 and is all-in

      Have had a few bad sessions and was just disgusted by the river. thought I'd go for bet/fold but couldn't fold.

      On the river should I check/call or just check/fold it?

      Hi Mahee,

      Preflop: So if the guy has a high fold to cbet and wasn't adjusting why are we making changes to our game?

      Our hand is not even that great to play versus a fishy guy OOP so we can simply muck it preflop (if we don't want to raise it).

      As played simply ck/fold that river. Villain will rarely bet out worse (he is a passive fish after all).

      Bet/calling is your worst option here by far. Perhaps bet/folding $2-$3 may work but there isn't much we get value from.
