      Hi all,

      Before we get started I know 3betting a MP raiser with QTs on BU isn't generally profitable poker, but: 1) I had this player tagged as a fish so wanted to isolate and 2) felt like mixing it up.

      My question is more about my flop raise. Does this only isolate us against better hands and get hands we are beating to fold. I certainly felt this way in hindsight. My plan was to 3bet/bet/push on the flop in this instance.

      Preflop: Fine is he is loose fish, but calling is also really good option, you have absolute position, its good hand.

      I like raise here, there is lot weaker hands what call (other draws and so on) + against every stronger hand you have lot of equity.
      You have total nuts, try to get value as much as possible.
      For example, even if he have Q with better kicker, you are flipping against him.
      So only hands what beats you is 33 and 66, there is 3combos both, so 6 hand combos what beats you, but he have defenetly a lot of 2club hands, some Q, and so on.
