      Player is a fish

      57/7

      in 60 hands.

      I not sure what to do If he raise me turn. I think that an 8x its more probably than a Jx.
      River I could bet, but its strante to see a worst hands payinng so I decided to bluffcath the draw.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On drawy board against fishes we should be orientated to bet more in order to charge his draws more.

      In other words, I'd bet around $2.75-$3 on the flop here.

      As played, I'd probably bet around $5.5 here on the turn and fold to a raise.

      On the river I think we are missing a lot of value when we check.
      Villain looks rather passive so we don't know whether or not he's going to bet his busted draws.
      Another bad thing is that when we check we give him the chance to check back his weak made hands that he was going to call a bet with (for example a hand like JT), and only bet his good hands.
      So I'm always shoving here on the river.

      Best,
      Plamen
