      Hero bets $3, BTN calls $3

      Hero bets $7, BTN calls $7

      River: ($24.25) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $15, Hero folds

      Villain was looking fishy, just few hands atm of the hand so no reliable stats other than small PFR and huge gap between VPIP and PFR

      I think turn barrel is ok as we have a tiny bit of FE and we will got much more value when we hit.

      Now I don't know if I should barrel vs fish on this perfect barreling river? What is your experience in this spot?

      On the flop we already have to decide about turn barrel I guess, cause even though we have low pair plus backdoors, one cbet probably wont be enough against a fishy guy, he could float us very light on this board.
      As the board run out, I think it's a good spot for a third barrel. Even though he seems fishy, he could have a hard time with something like 66.

      I think open pre flop is not standard and I would only do it with fish in blinds.

      Post flop I would play like Hero.

      I think pre is whatever, folding is definitely fine, folding is definitely fine. Just depends on game flow.

      On the flop, I think cbet is good, we fold out some equity shares.

      On the turn we can start getting pocket pairs to fold and we have good equity. He will sometimes still call some draws.

      On the river I think we should go fro the third barrel, it looks extremely strong and we can legit represent good hands here, i think he would have an amazingly tough time calling with say 88/77 kind of hand strength.
