      What you think checking/betting on Turn?
      I have value on my hand but vs that opponent - he has/have everything.
      Most of times fish like call/float A high but on that board - maybe he has/have flush draws / Qx / random / Ax

      Hey Urmo1,

      Preflop iso-raise vs weak opponent is fine. He can definitely call with worse given his stats.

      Flop is a clear cbet for value.

      Turn is not great. You may be beat. Even if you aren't beat villain is less likely to call with worse. I think the answer depends on your estimation of villain so far. If he's just going to call with all flush-draws, random garbage and PP's, then sure, why not bet.

      Unless you are certain villain is that terrible I'd stick with your line though and check turn. You might even be able to value bet a blank river after turn goes check/check, but on the 3 I think you took the correct line of check/folding.
