      Everest Poker $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 5
      UTG: $25.65
      CO: $34.50
      Hero (BTN): $35.34
      SB: $24.75
      BB: $25.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.40) Hero is BTN with A :diamond: Q :club:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.90, Hero raises to $3.10, 2 folds, CO calls $2.20

      Flop: ($6.60) 5 :spade: 9 :diamond: 5 :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($6.60) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($6.60) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      I was thinking if this is the best way to play good hands against passive fish (80/17), fold to flop cb=20%...

      Hello simoska,

      Against fish I might even consider to just Call it but of course it depends what kind of opponents are behind us. If they are stations as well then 3betting should be fine. The problem just is that when we don't hit we don't have much fold equity anyways and which was exactly the case and likely I would as well just Check/Fold there as you did.

      Best regards.
