      PokerStars - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: $28.54
      BTN: $40.38
      Hero (SB): $26.39
      BB: $25.00
      UTG: $20.52 (VP 93 / PR 11 / 3B 3)
      MP: $31.84

      Hero posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has A:spade: J:club:

      UTG calls $0.25, fold, fold, BTN raises to $1.00, Hero raises to $3.50, fold, UTG calls $3.25, fold

      Flop: ($8.25, 2 players) 2:club: 8:heart: 6:spade:
      Hero bets $4.51, UTG raises to $9.02, fold

      This is one of the spots I repeatedly have problems with. Is there a point in cbetting against fish here? I think my squeeze is for value, but being oop on this kind of board, should I just give up? If it depends, what should be my considerations here?

      Hello awishformore,

      Nah, seems to be fine. I would still threw a 1/2 pot size CB there vs him while we could sometimes even be ahead vs his BTN range.

      But you should also take a look at the sample here which is important. :) If we can even 3bet vs tight PFR for example. If you did then also CB the flop -> for value with Ace high.

      Best Regards.
