      Preflop: Fold preflop. This move will bring you much $ in terms not loosing it. You must know you won't hit many good flops and even if you do it won't bring you much money. Cold calling is therefore not an option so fold 3bet it is. If you decide to 3bet, do it bigger - $1,20. When BB calls we don't like our action because we don't know what kind of hand can he have.

      Flop: Bad flop for us but I would still cbet it. If we check he might bet. And even if he checks and we decide to bet on turn (which will be a miss in most cases) he probably won't fold.

      Turn: We're happy to see this turn. We should value bet it. I would bet a bit more $1,50. I wouldn't do it too much because we don't want bit pot on the river to make a decision. When he raises us we're in tough spot. I don't know what kind of history you have with him but his move looks strong. Calling is out of question. Folding is probably a better option. What did you put him on? I don't like playing for stacks with TPGK on this kind of boards.

      Hello GSG777,

      Preflop: Against a fish I wouldn't even 3bet here. Not really worth while you will never even know where you stand if you hit your TP.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, I'd most likely bet it even bigger here. We still have to protect our hand plus of course we don't want to induce any kind of raises with a draw from him. I'd bet ~$1,60. But as played well, what kind of hands do you expect him to have here? While you even don't know that much the opponent I might even be towards Bet/Folding. I mean even if he has some kind of pair it will be most likely a pair+draw against which our equity ain't gonna be so good. Can we even expect him to Call with hands like JT/QJ?

      Best Regards.
