      Hi,

      aggainst a major fish like this one is the river play ok, he could have a lot of jacks and even a missed fludhdraw? Before the river I made the bets smaller for pot control and for him to stay in.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Just fold this. AJo is way too loose to open from UTG in a 9 handed game.

      Flop: Since villain is a big fish, I think check/calling is much better. Bad players will completely misread your hand and either pay you off too light on future streets, or bluff too often.

      As played,

      Turn: I don't think you have a turn value bet here when the 7 pairs. If the Turn paired the Queen and is something like a Q, or maybe it brings another draw like the 6 of spades, then I may prefer betting the Turn for thin value since he is probably never folding JX here.

      I would take a c/c line now.

      River: This is insane, to value bet 3 streets here. He never folds 7X, and in terms of combos, you are behind QX, 7X, and beating some JX. There are 3 Qs left in the deck, 2 Js and 2 7s left as well. Based on this alone I think it should be clear that the river bet is very bad.

      We should just check/call to bluff catch from so many busted draws like clubs or T9/KT/AK/AT.
