      SB is a whale 54/29 after 108 hands, has been seen making some crazy calls.

      BTN is TAGgish looking opponent, 20/14, opened 25% of BTNs so far. AF flop=8.0, AF turn=0.6. Fold to 3bet 0/2. 80 hands. Said stuff in chat which suggested he's not a recreational player but takes the game a bit more seriously.

      My plan for this hand was to fold out the likely weak range of BTN pre while getting some more money in vs. the whale on the SB.

      On the flop I assume I am folding out most of Btn's raise/calling range (folds: 99, TT, QQ, AT, AJ, AQ, calls/raises: AA, KK, JJ) and getting value from the heaps of hands that SB will peel with.

      Well played overall?
      Any other comments (e.g. sizing)?

      I like the pf raising size. Since there is a limper.

      x3 raise + limper:)

      I'd c-bet a bit higher liker 2,60. / 2,80 (get some more FE) and fold at his RR (or get the pot).

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Preflop: Being OOP and being a bit deeper I'd squeeze it bigger ~$1,50.
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, no point to do it much bigger cause you have practically the same fold equity I would assume. :) If he has the Kx then he is going to Call and meanwhile we could get value even from worse Jx.

      Best Regards.
