      Hey,

      Didn't know CO his CB frequency.

      Should we just lead out and protect our hand on the flop whilst CO can easily check behind with overcards?

      Your hand is a decent hand to turn into a bluff. Leading doesnt achieve much. Cc seems suboptimal as 7x in a 3way pot is too weak. Pair + backdoor flushdraw and gutshots are ideal hands to balance tour flop cr range here.

      I would cr and bet all turn cards which improve my hand like 2p trips or flushdraw and probably bet most rivers. You block 77 so its way less likely he has a set and having some bluffs in your range can be a good thing if u are only cr ing nutted hands here

      Imagine if u were the other guy with AA and ur opponwnt cr flop bet turn shoce river in 3way pot here. U will prpbably be hating life

      - I think this is a great idea if the guy who's cbetting is a regular or decent player. Now we're up against a fish and I think or FE is too low.

      - To come back to the donking... You say it doesn't achieve much. Isn't protection super important ones we're playing 3way and a lot of turns suck? It can even be for value in this spot. Another reason to take the initiave is that we can't really call a CB from CO profitably I guess.

      Oh yes forgot hes a fish, so cc if he has a wide rangw. If not cf.

      Protecting weak hands is not a good idea in general. I guess u woulf be turning your hand into a semi bluff, kind of like whwn u cr. I guess donking can be ok, but i donk as a semi bluff with intention of firing good turns like overcards and cards which improve equity. Dont like just betting once purely for protection. Imo that is not good
