      CO: $18.43 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 9, AF: 2.3, Hands: 73
      BTN: $20.20 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 12, 3B: 5, AF: 2.8, Hands: 1376
      SB: $18.71 - VPIP: 31, PFR: 15, 3B: 9, AF: 1.3, Hands: 152
      Hero (BB): $25.36 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 6, AF: 3.8, Hands: 32728
      UTG: $17.45 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 13, 3B: 6, AF: 1.1, Hands: 103

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is BB with J :heart: A :heart:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.60, SB calls $0.50, Hero calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.80) T :diamond: 5 :heart: T :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($1.80) 5 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($1.80) J :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.20, BTN calls $1.20, SB raises to $6.60, HERO ?

      i usually sqz here to get HU with the fish, but in this hand the Button was opening 20% of buttons and wasn't really folding so i decided to keep the pot small.
      the ck/r from the fish was pretty insta, if that helps ...

      thanks

      Hi Vasili,

      Preflop: Since SB is a fish and BTN somewhat tight we can easily 3-bet this preflop to isolate SB and play IP with him.

      As played I'd bet/fold the river versus a passive fish. I don't think he is raising (m)any worse hands on the river and he can slowplay a 5x/Tx. So calling just for a split is not ideal (and we also have BTN after).
