      Villain was 69/25 for 16 hands but open limping led me to mark him as a fish.

      On the flop I think this range is appropriate QQ+,55,22,A2s+,43s,A2o+,43o. I have 70% vs this range. It is hard to know which hands he will 4bet with and which hands he will call my 3bet with.

      I don't think the turn changes much but villain may have picked up a flush draw. I had about 70bb behind with 57bb in the pot I was thinking of shoving. On the river I considered check folding but decided to shove.

      Hi Kevin,

      Preflop: looks fine, we can't really raise.

      Flop: The usual rule is that we play small pots in limped pots unless we have the nuts.

      I think the range you are giving him for raising your bet so big is a bit loose.

      I can't see him raising QQ/KK and many weaker Ax hands.

      I can see him raising A2, A5, AA, possibly 52s, 34s, 22, 55, AK/AQ maybe AJ.

      Why do you think he could raise QQ/KK?

      Since most fishy players are passive with TP type hands I wouldn't be so thrilled to stack off in a limped pot here.

      I think it is possible that he wants to limp 3bet preflop although this is more common when fish are in EP/MP.

      I include weak Ax holdings as it is quite common to overplay these hands at this level but you are correct in saying that villain will rarely go all in with anything less than AJ

      Yeh he can limp/reraise those but I don't think he'd raise flop with them.
