      Squeezing would be OK, decided to call to keep the fish in. On the other hand - he might call with worse and I would gain initiative.

      I donked to get value from worse Qx and draws. OR is very active and could be semi/bluffing, so I have to call. I think he`s never got AA/KK, because of 2bb open.
      9x is a possibility - 89, 9T.

      What if he pots it? Stats-wise he`s very aggro, but sample is small. I think I would have to fold, doubtfully he would play draws this strong on this board.

      KQ gets there - not much value left, so check.

      Preflop: You should squeeze precisely because there's a fish. Even without the fish I think i would squeeze here pretty often. You should squeeze here for value as well as isolation - It woudl be great if you can force UTG out and have the fish left behind so you can play headsup vs him.

      Flop: I agree with leading here, with a fish in the hand. When you get raised, this is kind of tricky but I don't think you can go wrong with calling here with TPTK. He shouldn't have too many 9X hands in his range

      River: I don't think you can bet here, JT and AK/KQ/KJ/KT all got there. Check and decide on whether you wanna call or fold. I think you can call cos he's probably going to be bluffing at the king really often.
