      I'm recently getting this a lot, people calling with weak draw and hitting on turn (he had gutshot). Should I protect more?
      I'm raising flop to make it look as a bluff and to provoke a bluff 3bet.

      against a probable fish(considering he is not fullstacked maybe you give some reads/stats ? ) I like raising flop 3x times since his bet is 3/4.They way you played he can often call you because he has SUPER GREAT odds to hit turn and win whole his stack(70 ~ bb + 70 ~ bb = 140 bb ~ pot).So you are more or less miss playing this hand.If he is the type of fish that plays 80vpip+ and is SUPER aggressive I like the play because he will go nutz when you do this and will always go on with whatever he has.So please define this type of player and in general adjust your play according to your opponents,as I don't find anything more profitable than this.

      sry I wrote in late nights and missed that.Vs unknown goes raise 3x his bet or just call him down and decide on turn.There aren't many bad cards you don't want to see.

      Hello z1pz0r,

      Preflop: You could also consider 3betting his steal here since our hand is pretty strong against his stealing range.
      Flop: For to balance our bluff line I usually would also Raise it up here since we would do sometimes the same with pure air but definitely for value also. Raise could be ~$6-7 so that it would be the same for bluffs.
      Turn: The question now is how we should continue? Either to bet out ourself since we don't really want him to Check behind, I would often consider that line better since I often expect them to Check behind hands like TT/8x/9x or something similar which has showdown value for him. And then we can likely just shove the river.

      Best regards.
