      Awwww, he had TJ, didn't he? :P After the judge evaluates, could you post results please? I'm curious =P

      I think I'm just calling his river bet. It looks like the K helped him, as fish are very often THAT straightforward. I won't discount the possibilities of a backdoor flush, he can have better straight and I wouldn't be surprised to see KQ either. You only beat KQ.

      I'd rather save the other $15. If he is in fact doing that play with something you beat, don't worry about not getting those $15, as he has just shown he wants to give his money away =)

      The only question is obviously whether we should just call the river or shove over, we're not folding ever.

      Since he is a fish it's rather hard to put him on a range, he might do that "for value" with KQ or have badly slowplayed a set that way. If the flop had been Qh9c6d i would likely have shoved over, but as it is the fact that this passive player wakes up like that on the river makes me think he might have had something like QhJh all along.

      In the end i think I would cut the last $15 out of the guessing game on fish logic and just call. If he hadn't donked i would have shoved myself.

      Hope it helps.
