      I think you should value raise bigger on the turn there if you want to raise.

      River depends how much of a station you think he is. He has quite a few 9x, 99, 77, 66, A5 hands in his range imo and if you think he calls most of those, it's a vbet.

      Yea in spots like this you can't be results oriented and realize that your play is still +EV with the information you have. I would also raise bigger on the turn and make a standard v-bet on the river. I just dont expect fish to lead monsters here.
