So I play 2nl 6-max zoom on Pokerstars. I know my opponent calls too light. I flop top pair top kicker, barreled 2 streets pretty high, river completes a possible openender. What would be the optimal play on the river usually?

I think Figaro said that best is to bet small river and fold to raise. The logic is that fish will call hugely wide, but only raise with nutted ones. This is general river light betting strategy btw, the difference here is that here you have to give up all the logic but just believe to the illogical mind of a fish. Just be carefull with top pair in 2NL zoom, even against standard fish/semi fish 3streets value is often overplay especially if you have early position opener power shield. I mean surely there are zillion fish you can do this, but 3 zillion fish you can’t.
Secondary play imo is to just check fold. (careful tag, nit)
Third play is to check/call. (? agro, any suited aggressive/semi agressive player, spring bettor)
I hope I'm right about this, no garantees. My normal play is secondary, but that is not that good imo at 2NL (probably).
