      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 147.3 BB
      Hero (SB): 560.8 BB
      BB: 102.1 BB
      UTG: 154.4 BB
      MP: 99.4 BB
      CO: 249.3 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:spade: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, BB calls 9 BB, fold

      Flop: ($2.30, 2 players) 3:spade: T:spade: 4:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB bets 21.9 BB, Hero calls 21.9 BB

      Turn: ($6.68, 2 players) Q:heart:
      Hero checks, BB bets 70.2 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 70.2 BB

      River: ($20.72, 2 players) K:club:

      Hero shows A:spade: A:diamond: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 82%, Flop 82%, Turn 89%)
      BB mucks T:club: 9:diamond: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 18%, Flop 18%, Turn 11%)
      Hero wins 197.2 BB

      His VPiP is 54, 100 hands. 3bet 9%, 4bet 0%. He calls 3bet pots 7/10 times, cold calls 3bet 2/4. He raises flop in 3bet pots 2/5, folds 2 times and calls ones.
      So I guess he is aggresive fish, and I let him bluff. Is it ok? or protect against draws, raise flop, or bet myself? Sometimes he could bluff with total air until all in, so I didnt want to scare him with raise, because in non 3bet pot he folds 1/1 to check raise (showing he is capable to fold).

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: If we let him bet here why not ck/raise for value? There's a ton of hands that can call/shove on this flop.

      Without much info I wouldn't assume that he can pot as a bluff two streets so I prefer to bet for value myself.

      The other option you have is to donk the turn small to induce a light call/shove. By small I mean 10-20 BB.
