      Hi.

      Flop: Villain is a fish, so check/call Flop is the best line. We can never go for more than 2 streets of value with 2nd pair, and the fish is probably going to make more mistakes if we check the Flop.

      Betting is fine as well but checking is the option with the higher EV especially vs fishes

      as played I don't see how we can fold, shoving turn is probably fine with 5$ left behind. You could also c/c Turn and just not fold on 100% of rivers.

      What do you think betting the turn achieves?

      Are you getting value from worse (are you a favourite vs his calling range on the Turn)?

      Are you bluffing out a King or better?
