      This time I wanted to play top pair overpairs check raise line and bet shove, because I notice that in NL20 99% of time people never fold to my raise and call it with any cards. And it seems to work.

      especially vs a fish player, I like the idea of check/raise flop some of the time on flops we are perceived to give up on. If you see someone not giving you any credit in a spot, you can expend your value range because not getting credit means played back at very weak in which case your medium hands becomes a lot better. Same happens here almost. Usually 99 would fold but it gave you next to no credit and snapped it off.
