      Guys a major fish playing 2/3 of his hands out of 21.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, Q.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.16) 7, T, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BB calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.4) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, BB raises to $0.52, Hero raises to $1.80, BB calls $1.28.

      River: ($4) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and nines(Qh Qs).
      BB shows three of a kind, nines(9h Qc).

      BB wins with three of a kind, nines(9h Qc).

      So IDK I don't think you can ever really get away from this hand. Theres just so much junk he could have (ATo, JJ, FD, SD) and your practically pot committed after you bet the turn. I'm just really annoyed cause I played 500 hands and this is all my profit gone right at the end :s_mad: .

      Hello ExMagnusxL,

      Nah, I don't really like to get it in on turn. Most often those kind of fishes don't raise with very weak hand, therefore I'd rather just Bet/Fold there and wait for better spot. He may as well already have straight there or maybe even FH or whatsoever. Take also into consideration that fish doesn't mean he is a maniac who raises with a lot of crap, often they are more passive and only Call with TPs and hands like this. Unless you have some other proofs.

      Best regards.
