      Again,

      Should I call pre? I always think I should call a lot looser vs fish -> more implieds.

      Or maybe is 3bet more +ev? :)

      Call or fold. I dont like to 3bet KTo ip even against fishy opponent. KQ+ its okay.

      3bet is fine if fish calls 3bets really wide and cf flop a lot. Calling isnt a great idea cos it could get muktiway and kto doesnt play well. Folding is fine too

      So if we don't know it (like almost always) it's better to just fold? :)

      I could go either way. Sometimes you need to take weaker hands which are barely strong enough to call and use them as 3bet bluffs to test the waters.

      I think both 3betting and folding are fine. If we 3bet and he 4bets, we have a really easy fold. If he calls, we could always cbet once and then give up or maybe pot control some pairs and bluff catch on later streets. We are just not going to make ultra huge mistakes IP with the initiative as we are going to have so much control over the hand.

      I dislike calling the most and it would require MP to open a really wide range for it to be profitable. We also have to be concerned with blinds squeezing or coming along for the ride, and both situations are unfavourable for us.
