      Hello, :f_p:
      On the Flop, the check/minraise looks very strong on this broad because not many draws. I think on the Flop, I think it is either shove or fold.
      How do you play this hand?

      thanks.

      Hey,

      If you shove, you isolate yourself against better. Do you understand what I mean with this?

      Because of that I would call Flop and mostly look to get it in ont he Turn

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hey Gerv, :)

      I think SB is fish because of his stack size. I think fish like to check/minraise with monster like 2 pairs +. So, I think my overpair is not good here.
      I don't think that fish will check/minraise with TP or overpair.
      They like to minraise to keep you in the pot when they have monster.
      I folded this hand :f_cry:
      May be I am wrong with this fish theory as above?

      I think you made the wrong move because it is a theory with no empirical evidence. Some do it but others also check/minraise with crap.

      Assuming everyone check/minraises with 2pairs+ just opens yourself up for getting owned far too often
