      This hand is played against regular looking opponent, but the sample was <15.

      I am not sure whether on such an ugly card continuing is correct. I believe we can either shove or c/f and c/f seems quite weak. I don't like the turn card because now even 9x will have hard time paying us off, but I still think shove>c/f.

      Hi burek,

      Preflop: I think your reads on him being reg-looking are off. Look at his stack size. Given that most regs play with 100bb, this is a very telling sign that he's a fish.

      Flop: I suppose in BvB 3betting Flop is fine, he has a ton of draws and random bluffs. He reps sets, 89, draws, and some bluffs.

      Actually vs fish I really like the 3bet. I think there are so many bad cards that I just prefer to stick all the money in on the Flop. Also, I think he will raise with many 9X type of hands which we can get a lot of value from. You might want to consider 3betting to an even larger size (no need to balance vs fish), to something like 14.

      Turn: When he flats you here, I put him on some flush draws (but i think fish play more passively with draws in general, a lot of 9X hands, and some straight draws.

      Can we value bet the Turn now? I don't think so. I expect him to fold 9X almost always, when the K hits and the flush draw.

      So our other 2 options are to c/c and to c/f. I might c/f if he bets super huge. But I think in general, I expect him to occasionally bet 9X (fish tend to bet randomly at times), and also he has a bunch of straight draws like 67 or TJ. I probably c/c Turn and decide on River.

      Maybe if you want to valuebet the Turn, you should make a really small bet and fold to a raise. But a big bet surely doesn't achieve anything.
