      Mp: 15/12 1.2 ag 67% fold to 3bet 0% fold to cbet 160 hands
      BTN: 48/11 2.7 0% fold to 3bet vis

      Preflop I am squeezing in order to isolate the fish. The mp flats my 3bet. I don't know what to think of this situation, because the mp seems like a solide player.

      The flop is pretty good, but wet. I think the cbet is ok, and I am hoping the mp will fold and the fish will call. The opposite happens. I am not sure about the mp's range. I suppose it will be something like 99+,Aq+. I dont assume this player will float me here, because the fish is able of calling too.

      The turn is a brick. Given that he would fold his whole range on my flop cbet, except for tt,qq+ and aq I dicide to check/fold since I am way behind on his range.
      To nitty?

      Hello Sjors777,

      Instead of CBetting the flop and then practically Check/Folding the turn I'd rather prefer Checking the flop instead. If I'd even Bet there then I'd also plan to do it a bit smaller like $9 so would also give me room to Bet the turn or at least reevaluate it.

      But usually vs such a guy you of course going to be behind anyways here and I doubt that we have much beat.

      Best Regards.
