      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG+1 with K :spade: A :club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $1, MP1 calls $1, 1 fold, CO raises to $2.50, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.50, MP1 calls $1.50

      Flop: ($7.85) J :club: 4 :club: K :heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, CO bets $4.50, Hero calls $4.50, MP1 folds

      Turn: ($16.85) 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $6.25, Hero calls $6.25

      River: ($29.35) A :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $13.15, Hero calls $13.15

      I'm mostly wondering about the preflop play. I called because I wanted to play with the fish, and I didnt want to isolate myself against better hands. Looking back, I think it was a bad play because I had to play a multiway hand oop against a strong range from CO. I think raise/fold would've been better.

      Hello Grokken,

      Preflop: Our hand doesn't play that well and also we are going to be OOP. Plus exactly facing such a spot where we might start to call down loose nor never know where we stand. I'd rather be 4betting instead here than Calling whilst CO raise is also super weak.

      As played
      Postflop: Well yeah, kinda guessing game now either he is capable of bluffing much or not. Though I doubt that often while doing that into a loose player which would maybe even make me rather fold the turn cause I can't really see that many worse hands betting there. Draws would Check behind and maybe even KQ or whatsoever holdings.

      Best Regards.

      4bet/fold pre
      I think I'd just fold cause I can't see him bluff squeezing all that often with those stats and vs utg open

      What's wrong with those stats? Pretty standard for FR game + the guy made super-small 3bet.
