      BB checks, Hero bets $3,00, BB raises to $9,00, Hero calls $6,00.

      Final Pot: $22,85

      Can I get away from this? Fish raises on the river are scary... It really feels like he would play a K this way. On the river I get something like 3:1 on my call. Would it make sense to only bet like half pot, 2.5$ on the river? Or does that even make any difference?

      Fish doesn't always mean that he can't have a hand. Unless I have very good read on him that he is capable of raising on river with pure bluff I am definitely folding on river, look his W$SD, it's too high. He is very often having there a better hand.

      Best regards,
