      UTG, just joined after 1 hand 100/0/-. And he called again. Also his stack is short - most likely a fish. I wanted to play with him HU, that's why I squeezed.

      Pre flop is great.

      Flop is ok, I don't expect them to start folding now and cards that improve them on the turn can often improve us as well.

      On the turn we have a clear raise for value. Beginners often think they are being outplayed, so once he bets so small I suspect him to level himself and never fold an ace on the turn or river, we can also get value from both straight, flush and a combination of draws.

      Hello staktas,

      Usually those very small bets either on flop or turn you can treat as checks and just raise for value. He could easily have worse Ax/PPs hands and of course even draws.

      Best Regards.
