      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 195.35 BB
      BB: 100 BB
      CO: 101.5 BB
      BTN: 158 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:spade: 9:spade:

      fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) J:heart: T:club: 7:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 5.25 BB, Hero raises to 14 BB, BTN calls 8.75 BB

      Turn: (35 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      Hero bets 20 BB, BTN calls 20 BB

      River: (75 BB, 2 players) 8:club:
      Hero bets 37.5 BB, BTN raises to 121 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 83.5 BB

      Hero shows J:spade: 9:spade: (Straight, Jack High) (Pre 47%, Flop 88%, Turn 93%)
      BTN shows 4:spade: K:heart: (One Pair, Sevens) (Pre 53%, Flop 12%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 307 BB

      280 hands 49/21 3b 21. cbet 65, fold to 3bet 8%

      Is it ok call preflop against fish? I didnt want 3bet because he would call often IP.

      Is check raise ok here on drawy board with no kicker? On turn blank I planned to check call, but since I had straight I bet. River fold? I hoped I at least split with 9x, but it seems that he is so much sure that I bluff when check raising. I started check raising with any top pair except A and it worked so far each time, they call with air mostly.

      What's his fold to Flop cbet? I actually do not mind making a really small 3b to like 7 or 8BB just to seize the initiative and isolate the fish from BB. But calling is certainly +EV too.

      As played there's really no point in check/raising the Flop. Few worse hands call (maybe only T9 and T8) and better hands never fold. You bloat up the pot unnecessarily OOP. Just c/c with the intention of calling most turns and you can decide on River.

      I am baffled by his hand :) and this guy is such a huge whale, that this is clearly a one-off exception.

      As I told, people in Ipoker NL20 just never fold to check raise. When I say never, I mean it happens once in 100 times that someone folds.
      I didnt see this guy calling check raise before this hand, but I make generalization just because I dont see anyone folding to my check raise.

      Probably the reason is that there are 10 people in total who play everyday so I suppouse they are reggs and others are all new players, I dont have statistics of them so I suppouse Ipoker is full of fish.
