      MP mucked and lost (-$0.16 net)

      Yet I'm playing against a fish again. I think TableScanner is a waste of money if you're playing on PokerStars :) Anyway,

      I'm not sure how I should react to such a behavior. It screws up all my strategy :f_biggrin: I think 5x, 4x, 3x are in his range, so am I just calling all the way? Or should I fold the turn regardless of the opponent and the bet size?

      Cheers

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I think we can cbet on that board - we have overpair and gutshot here and we don't mind if we take down the pot right here.

      As played on the flop, calling turn is fine.

      On the river calling given these odds is good even on that river.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Oh true. I'm practicing how not to bluff c-bets on wrong boards...and this is the wrong board, but I didn't realize that I wouldn't be bluffing considering my hand :f_biggrin:
