      Hey Dracsharp,

      Preflop: I don't mind the call to play with fish and regular (with a nice hand). However we can also 3-bet to capitalize on the dead money and possibly isolate CO.

      Flop: The board is dry enough that we can expect BTN to cbet bluff. On more connected boards we should bet out to isolate the fish.

      Turn: Villain can still bet worse Qx so we can call again.

      River: We now lose to QJ along with 33, 22, QQ, KK, AA.

      I find it hard to believe that villain will bet much worse on the river. I can't see him betting as a bluff nor betting something like KQ. In the worst case scenario he bets AQ for a split plus all of the above.

      So on the river we have to check/fold (even though sample is not huge look at his river aggression - these guys don't value bet thin or bluff).
