      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9, 9.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.80, 2 folds, BB calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.7) 9, 7, 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.85, Hero raises to $2.80, BB calls $1.95.

      Turn: ($7.3) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($7.3) A (2 players)
      BB bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00.

      Final Pot: $13.3.

      Villain is fishy VP:58/PR:21/AFq:50 over 19 hands

      maybe bigger raise on the flop?
      Check behind on the turn is fine imo.
      I only called the river because Villain is fishy. What ya think?

      Hi!

      Yeah you could raise 3,5 but against that kind of fish it is pointless. They tend to chase gs as fd so he is calling with any T, 5, 8 + he is peeling it off with any A9 A7 A6 maybe even with kings(specially diamond ones).
      So I think your line is fine, you control the pot and let him bet with worse hands from time to time.

      I think 2.8$ is fine amount
      that is big enough raise to put in 3/4 betsize bet if turn is blank and then shove also on blank river
      river call is fine. Don´t expect to be ahead that often, but also you can´t fold your hand

      Which hands do you think BB will play like this?

      Hi T,

      From what I remember he had something like A7.

      T.
      any two pair, but also a lot of times 9x, maybe 7x that doesn´t want to call river bet, so he´d lead out himself
