      Hi,

      Villain is an unknown fish. The river is obv bad for me but his sizing looks so weak. J9 right? Something like that probably. So why not bluff on this scary board vs 9x? Do u think they herocall too much?

      I guess it's also nice that I have A hearts although I don't expect him to play flushes like this..

      Hey,

      It can be Tx, KJ, J9, J8... If you only target J9, you probably don't make him fold enough. Unless you know the fish can fold, just don't try to bluff him imo. The default thing fish do is call. Some ofc fold in some spots because of how unbalanced and weak their ranges are but you need to find those spots first.
