      you could go a little bigger on turn but i dont think thats a big issue. he could fold his Ax draws if we bet too big but majority of draws would call a bigger bet.

      i dont like the river bet, Ax now has a straight and the backdoor flush completes i think its a check/fold

      Given that he is pure fish how can we ever fold this given the money he has left behind?
      Only because they love Ax hands? He is never folding 9x here and 77-88 type hands. Also we beat his overpairs if he isnt 3betting them.

      i know it sounds ridiculous to fold a 1.60 pot to a 40 cents bet but what is he betting on the river with? a fish is checking almost his entire range on the river after we bet twice into him unless hes sure he beats us. and overpairs may not call us either and would probably have 3bet anyway.

      if we think about an 90 cents bet into a 1.60 pot then it becomes clearer, but if we had bet bigger on turn al have like 20 cents into a 2 dollar pot then of course we are not folding.

      and yes they do love Ax hands and to call and draw for it.
