      Hello,

      I'd make it 6bb preflop.

      On the flop your bet is fine.

      Second bet on the turn is ok, and when he raises I'd just fold it.
      Stacking off here without any information is mistake here, especially for 150bb, since by my personal experience I'm almost always being against a stronger hand in these spots.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Only hands i put him on that beat me are pocket 5's.

      I didnt put any 2x hands in his range, but i guess A2s makes sense, i just find it hard to believe haha.

      when he raises the turn, I only think he as Qx, bluffs and perhaps a FD. i tired to convince myself he had a 2 but i thought they would raise flop to protect against FD

      EDIT: Reason for 6x is our position?

      Betting to 6 i think is pretty standard. 4XBB + 10 for every limper.

      Reasons for 6x:

      - 2 limpers
      - we are deep with one of the fish and he can call more with his whole range and thus we get more value and can get more money in postflop
      - we are OOP

      As played I'd also bet/fold turn. Against fish we are behind here often (with no info).
