      UTG: $13.77 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1,3, Hands: 45
      MP: $7.08 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 18
      CO: $1.72 - VPIP: 83, PFR: 40, 3B: 18, AF: 4,5, Hands: 486CB flop:90%, CB turn:100%, cb river:75%, CO openr range:60%
      Hero (BTN): $5.41 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 71621
      SB: $5.34 - VPIP: 10, PFR: 5, 3B: 9, AF: 0,0, Hands: 21
      BB: $5.00 - VPIP: 6, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 18

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with A :diamond: T :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.37) 4 :club: K :club: J :spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.67) 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.40, Hero ? He always bets these amounts, no information there.

      Yeah, calling him preflop I should have had a plan in my head. Well, basically, he 3barreling DOES NOT narrow his range at all, it gives us no extra information.That would incline me to call him down with A-high. I mean, imagine, that preflop he says, that I'm going to 3barrel, no matter what I have. We would call him down on ANY board with A-high, right? Well, this is just the case.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Considering his stack size and our weak hand (not even a backdoor flush) why not just fold the flop? Especially since you know you'll get bet into almost always and can't really improve often.

      Simply fold the flop.

      What do you think about my pink ideas above? I'm really curious.

      The 3-bet would not really isolate him too much and since he is aggro we'd probably get donked into a lot so I'd just call to keep the pot small and play postflop where our real advantage can come in.

      I wouldn't really call down A high vs him until we knew what he really valuebets. Some of this fish bet all the pairs they ever hit and then AT is not that great (although we are still ahead some amount of the time). But against him it's most likely easier to hit a decent bluff catcher and call down.
