      Hey,

      Preflop:
      Is this good? I was the lowest SC I would raise with I guess because the BTN was also a fish.

      Flop:
      Std CB.

      Turn:
      Awkward stacksize. I think betting for free sd and vs all those draws out there is prob best but I'm commited if he shoves. what to do?

      River:
      Call ? :)

      Hi,

      PF size seems a little small but it's fine. I think I would even raise 89s and T8s as well.

      Flop: 9 pair is almost right smack in the middle. I check 2nd pairs a lot if it's TX or better (because there are fewer bad turn cards). I almost always cbet with 2nd pair if it's 8 or lower because there are more bad turn cards. I think your play is fine, but you should expect to have to bluff catch him on many rivers especially if the draws miss.

      Turn: I think betting small (under halfpot) and checking back are both options. Betting halfpot or more is just too thin. I don't mind making another bet if our kicker was stronger (A9 or Q9). I think your play seems fine with such a weak kicker.

      River: Now snap call, we beat so many busted draws and fish like to bluff with small bets. I might not even fold Ace high here. QJ QT JT spades, some diamonds are all busted on the River so I think this is really an easy call with the pot odds he's offering you (1/5 = 20%)

      -----------

      Oh sorry I didn't realize he was short. I guess your smaller isoR makes sense and I would raise tighter, but at the same time I think I prefer you to limp behind. These shorties just limp/shove so often. I may isoraise as they get deeper (>35BB)

      This guy never limp/shoved so does this make it raise>limp?

      hi,

      i don't think you can know that he never limp/shoves with only 20 hands on him. Of course the best case scenario for us is if he limp/calls and it's headsup, and we can just cbet and take it down or we flop a draw and push him out of the hand.

      But things will not go our way all the time right? We must prepare for all situations. So I think limp behind is better vs 20bb stack. I don't expect blinds to isoraise wide range vs CO cos he can easily limp/shove vs them.
