      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60, Hero raises to $2.40, UTG folds, BTN folds

      Don't have much info on Villains (<10 hands), but all have 50+ vpip this far.

      So was thinking of leading flop, but i don't have nutdraw and i'm not sure if i'm willing to play for stacks, although against these guys it shouldn't be too bad. So was thinking of c/r flop to get initiative and gain some FE, but again didn't do it. should i?

      i hit the turn so i just raise it up big. obvious, but i dont see any other way how to play this against fish.

      Hello nktns,

      Flop: I don't mind to donk out there myself, with Check/Raise I don't really expect to have more fold equity on such board but however Calling there and playing for pot control is somehow also fine. Because we are against fish, as you said.
      Turn: Pretty standard Check/Raise spot, well played.

      Best regards.
