      Hello lukezo,

      Preflop: Depends a lot against what kind of opponent are we against, by that I mean UTG. When he is somewhat nitter side then I might even prefer playing postflop against them then 3betting. Although when there is really such a fish in the hand then just go for it and 3bet for value. And as well you can even raise it bigger here like $0,85.
      Postflop: And not much to do, basically while having such a fish in the hand and as well even UTG, I might CBet myself to maybe get value from some draws from the UTG guy and maybe even worse Ax. And of course against the fishy shove there is not much to do than go broke. We just can take a not on him that he did such a horrible Call with J8o while having a small stack.

      Best regards.
