    The guy is a huge fish ,play a lot of hands like 60/40 with big aggression type of guy .
    Definitely he can c/r here with weird hands but so far he's betting big on the rivers too .
    I thought that our hand is like total bluff catcher and was not sure If call call is + EV play here .ANd If I'm ahead I must dodge a lot of cards on the riv also .
    Any thoughts ?

    Hello, a couple of questions that will probably make your decision easier

    a)What is villains preflop and on the flop calling range?
    b) Why do you bet that turn card and why 2/3? Are you going for value or maybe you are valuetowning yourself? What makes you think villain is gonna quit given his flop call? Whats your plan if you get raised (as you did) in such a wet board?
    c)What is villains turn raising range? How your hands plays against that range?

    Pokerstove is your friend imo :)

    I know that maybe the correct value extracting tactic Vs fishes is bet bet bet but thats not the case always...as this example can clearly show, especially against agro monkeys like the villain.

    Just my two (euro)cents

    I just really dont see fish bluffing like this often enough to make calling here profitable, Id tend to fold

    Maybe because I`m not entirely sober but call/call seems a good play to me vs. the opponent as described
