      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.

      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.
