      here, was a soul read that went absolutely wrong. I felt fickle about 2 players calling my giant sized 3bet preflop.
      known players:
      Mp2 fish 25 hands, 44/24
      MP3 17/14 thru ~80 hands

      im afraid of someone having a K, especially the MP3 who is supposed to have AK i would think here. so i dont cbet for that main reason here. mistake to put him on 1 hand?? i tink not in this special case..what else would he call this bet preflop with? i have been solid so far and my image is good imo. my dilemma once i see the low bet by the fish is this: could it be a draw? in that case i have to jam the pot. but hes NEVER folding a K and could be just trying to get more chips out of me with low bets, oblivious to any draws the flop offers..typical fish imo. but i cant fold to 1/4 the pot, and the turn bet is even more enticing to raise....but again...i just call fearing the K..and rightfully so. i made a HUGE 3 bet preflop. what to do what to do this whole hand fucked me up!

      Hello ilovemagic,

      I like your play here, not that many worse hands Call you on the flop and if we CB the flop then we kinda have to be ready to call-down on further actions as well. I'd also rather let him bluff. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
