      fishy villain was minraising me preflop for my last 5 hands and i decided to call him. i think 4betting him light is the better option than playing OOP. still i somehow hit the miracle board, how to play it vs 5.5af villain OOP

      That flop is actually he good place to donkey bet.
      I want to get it all in on this flop if possible.
      As played on the flop, the turn is OK.
      You should place a block bet on the river, you might hand might be good here against this loose fish. Checking will give him a chance to bluff you out of the hand.

      Ugh, K9s is not exactly the hand I want to call a 3bet with oop preflop with. I'd rather 4bet him if he was 3betting as much as you said, or fold, leaning towards folding and waiting for a better hand (not as easily dominated) to call him with.

      Considering his AF I think it's correct to go for a c/r here on the flop. We don't know how he reacts to donkbets (not sure he raises them that is). It's unfortunate that he checks behind. Turn is fine of course but I like the idea of betting small on the river, he's less likely to bluff if you do so.
