      Howdy,

      I like your raise on flop and against a fish we can easily play for stacks here. I'd make it slightly bigger tho, like 0.60$.

      Hard to say about turn as we have no idea if he have any FE against pp, so even if he shove against TT/Jx we are not in the best shape overall (not given the times he has 6x/J6/J4/66/44), so I'd usually call and hope to hit.

      Good luck!
