      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with J :club: J :spade:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.50, Hero raises to $1.75, 1 fold, BTN calls $1.25

      Flop: ($3.75) Q :spade: 4 :heart: 9 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BTN raises to $4, Hero raises to $23.25, BTN calls $7.12 all in

      Turn: ($25.99) 2 :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($25.99) A :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Villain: openlimping MS fish

      Obviously the flop go broke line is embarrassingly bad and I honestly didn't believe my eyes when I saw this hand :f_mad: Even for an old hand it is quite sad.

      But anyway, how do we play this hand on the flop vs his stack size given that he seems fishy and loose?
      We can't bet, flop bet/call turn but neither can we just bet the flop alone. Could we maybe just check/call the flop and hope he shuts down?

      Hello Avatars91,

      How many worse hands pay you on the flop if you Bet? What's your plan if he raises/shoves? Ask yourself those questions before you betting, just betting and oh then I am going to act isn't going to work out.

      To get value from weaker hands even Check/Calling could be possible cause we can assume such a player very often Checks behind the turn if he doesn't have a hand.

      Best Regards.
