      Villain is a nit fish. After I squeezed I value bet, but my flop bet got called by the nit. I decided to pot control (is it wrong in this spot?) but got a little lost on the river. The only hands I think he could have were KQ, TT or JJ, but I think he wouldn't have bet the river with these hands so I was confused and didn't know if I should fold, call or shove on the river.

      Hello,

      Preflop I don't really mind squeezing here considering we have a fish.

      I'd bet around $1 on the flop.

      As played, checking back the turn is fine. We can't really take value from many worse hands here.

      On the river calling against this bet is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
