      Villain didn't check/raise before. Looks solid. Just let it go? :)

      Since there is a fishy guy in SB I would open 3x.

      Yeah, i don't see a reason to continue vs that c/r from nitty guy. At best he has like 50% equity with FD+overs.

      Hey,

      I think that raising bigger vs a fish in the blinds is a good strategy, yes.

      On the flop I think we should defend the flop c/r. On the turn if he has a set (most likely hand to be beating us) then he will bet really big as there is a flush draw on the board, if he has a9 or some random showdown hand then he would likely bet smaller to see a river card without seeing a big bet.

      These opponents will be really clear with their hand strengths on the turn and we can exploit them there.

      So for me, call flop, decide turn.

      Lol, first time I thought villain VPIP was 17. I think that would make a difference.

      Thanks both.

      Just 1 question:
      I agree that we can openraise bigger when we have fish in the blinds and when I'm just new at the table I'd always do it but don't we even have to balance a bit vs fish? Even they will notice that we open our strong hands larger after a while. Or would you 3x open our whole BTN range?

      I'd open my whole btn range yeh, I still think cbet is going to be profitable and the fish won't adjust by 3betting more which would cause us problems but calling a wider range in the bb which is fine as he will c/f more :)
