      I was thinking of a call after he checked the turn, but I think I made the right decision. Or should I bet on the turn in these kind of situations? I think he had something like 2 pair, but maybe JJ or TT. After all, I lost only 16 BB.

      you usually don´t want to play slow top pair on that board against fish
      I would b/c turn, since he can c/rai there with worse hands and I think most of the times you´re ahead his range
      as played: I think he can also shove there smt like Jx, Tx, missed flushdraw, so I wouldn´t fold there top pair
