      Co: 14/8 over 752 hands
      MP2: 62/4 over 51 hands

      Preflop: my raise is on the weaker side and could have been bigger especially considering the fish were to act before the other player making it likely that if the fish called so would the other player, on the other hand I have the best hand and wants action + I have absolute position. but perhaps I should mak it $1.4 instead?

      Flop gets checked to me, both straight and flush is possible while I have top set. At first I thought I have to protect so I bet big, problem is that I'm committed because even against a made straight or flush I have decent equity with my redraws for the full house. even against his push I only need 24% so easy call.

      Problem I don't think I would ever get action from worse hands (well the fish could possible call with 2 pairs but that's it)+ their range should be pretty strong having at least a gutshot in a 3bet pot like this.

      Is checking behind a viable option or is bet/call the only correct line?

      Hello ollehult,

      Nah, I wouldn't Check behind here ever. We have to protect our hands against any kind of draws. I am also playing Bet/Broke here. Nice hand! There are just so many hands which we beat like any worse sets and even a pair+draw.

      About the preflop it's totally fine while you even have the position to do it 3x his raise.

      Best regards.
