      Opponent is a fish.

      What do you think about the flop? We have here weak showdown value, should we turn it into a bluff since it will be pretty hard on later streets to play without initiative?
      What about turn? He seems pretty bluffy, so is call ok?

      The river bet is very polarised, he either has stupid random bluffs or flush, but actually I will never believe into his flush. Is river call ok?

      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($27.54)
      BB ($41.54)
      Hero ($25)
      CO ($23.03)
      BTN ($25)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: A:club:

      Hero raises to $0.75, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.50

      FLOP ($1.60) 7:spade: 6:diamond: J:heart:

      BB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $2, BB calls $1.50

      TURN ($5.60) 7:spade: 6:diamond: J:heart: A:diamond:

      BB bets $2, Hero calls $2

      RIVER ($9.60) 7:spade: 6:diamond: J:heart: A:diamond: 4:diamond:

      BB bets $9.25, Hero calls $9.25

      BB shows T:heart: K:spade:
      (Pre 38%, Flop 25.3%, Turn 6.8%)

      Hero shows Q:heart: A:club:
      (Pre 62%, Flop 74.7%, Turn 93.2%)

      Hero wins $26.84

      this guy donks pretty often and so far has proven not to give up hands and take a large % of his hands to showdown so we have reason to believe that his hand range is weak when he keeps betting and we should call or possibly even raise river for value.

      Actually I don't think we can raise river for value, since he is really polarised.
      And if he is so agressive and stupid to play in a such way dual pair, I'm pretty sure he will never fold it.
      Mb we have here value raise on the turn, but I am not sure. It is too thin.
