      The button was a fish 68/35 who was stealing everytime from BTN. That is why i called with AJ. I wanted to 3bet him but i know he would 4bet and than it would be hard for me to make a decision.
      Would you fold on the river?

      No way I would fold the river against a fish.
      I may even float the turn as he may have a lot of hand combos here.

      I think you can bet the turn for value. He will call FDs, most pairs + FD or SD, two, sets, any J. River is close, but you can't really fold there. I think I would only call his raise though. He could do that move with any J or Kx. Unfortunately, his the x in Kx will be on board too sometimes and he'll have the full house.

      I think AJ is strong enough hand to play for stacks pf is he has been 4-betting before
      River: i´d just b/c, since I doubt he is raising there too many worse hands for value that he is going to call shove
