      Villain looks fishy on a small sample. The turn I should have bet bigger I think to get value from A-x. What to do on the river raise? Against a TAG I would lean towards a fold, but this villain still could have a lot of K-x in his range. Not sure if he would play them aggressively though. Thougts, comments?

      Hey MoneyStef,

      Against a fishy opponent, your hand is typically strong enough to extract 3 streets of value. River is not the best card to extract value so potentially a smaller bet works best.

      Vs river raise it should be a pretty easy fold. True villain may have a worse Kx some of the time. He probably doesn't raise any Kx very often on a flush river however. His range is going to be weighted towards slowplayed AK/AA + 88/66 and then backdoor hearts like Q:hJ or A:h9.
