      i know strange line on the flop but the guy called a 3bet flatted so i guess even beeing a fish hes on a medium-strong range

      i know he folds anything on flop that is behind if i bet prob call with AT and KQ yh...but still would be a 50 50 situation. i know i would insta win for the fe but i wanted to value somehow

      so i went for a tricky check miniraise, and just half pot on turn, hoping to get value outa any pair and any Q

      on the river tbh i got stuck so Q got trips...can he have a lower A? i though maybe so i bet, but probably a mistake

      If he is a passive fish why are we check/raising the flop? I wouldn't check to him since he would check back a lot.

      I prefer a small cbet and going for 3 streets of value.

      Any Ax, Qx and pairs would most likely call a cbet on the flop and turn.

      so small betting 3x? 50%?

      what kind of sizing wud 2nd pairs pay here. i dont rl think a usual 66% bet would achieve much more then 1 street, IF it did achieve 1 street

      Hello Darkyd10,

      As long you are assuming that he is a fish then we expecting him to have a lot worse Ax hands. Especially as you went for the Check/Raise. Therefore you have clearly Bet the flop/turn & ship river. :) Sizes are according to get him all-in.

      Best Regards.
