      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with 7 :spade: 9 :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) Q :spade: 8 :spade: 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.30, CO raises to $3, Hero calls $1.70

      Turn: ($7.85) T :spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $5.50, Hero calls $5.50

      River: ($18.85) J :club: (2 players)
      CO bets $12.25, Hero folds

      Cbet of ~ 80 atm of the hand.

      I can't figure anything else than a flush that would play c/r small flop and then fire two strong barrels when the third suit arrives. Don't see how he could play this way Qx or a set or AA.

      Reg opens, you have a regular in the BB with 8% 3bet on average. Your preflop call is abismal.

      If you think he c/r FD only, why do you call flop or better yet, why do you call turn when flush hits? Call flop, call turn and fold that river with a flush is non-sense.

      The whole problem started with preflop though, because you didn't pay attention to the table.

      CO is weak player and SB is fish. I like the idea of calling speculative hands on and play multiway with weak players.

      As I can't define his range on the flop the fold is better, right on that.

      What's a speculative hand? Define it pls! What are it's characteristics? :f_biggrin:

      Just as a small warning, whatever you say I'll probably bring lots of arguments why they are bad hands but maybe you find the answer yourself by answering my question :)

      Instant LE: SB being a fish doesn't change aggro BB. Exchange BB with SB and we have something to talk about. BB can squeeze to keep SB fish in without any problem.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: What about the BB? What about his squeeze? Might even not be the best option to flat like that if you have squeeze-happy guy behind you. I would rather prefer to 3bet myself if I want to play the hand at all.

      As played
      Postflop: I would never lay it down there, especially when you called the flop. I would see him CBetting with the FD rather than Check/Raising.

      Best Regards.
