      Hello
      What you think about resteal vs cold call IP?
      SB was 63/38 and 24 hands only.
      I think preflop this hand is little value for resteal and reisolate the UTG limper.
      But on flop i have difficulties.
      what you think about the flop play?

      Hi Urmo,

      Considering that SB is also a fish (stack size and stats) I would not 3-bet this hand unless we knew it's pure value. And without knowing much about villain it's actually quite thin.

      I don't think it's realistic to expect to reisolate UTG and get rid of SB from the pot. If UTG calls SB will almost always call as well. And if UTG folds SB will most likely still call a lot.

      Why do we bet so small on the flop? That bet may induce villain to bluff a hand like 99 which might otherwise fold.

      I'd bet at least $4 and go with the hand. Otherwise just check back and take a free card.

      Because i hoped cheap fold in that situation. (especially vs fish)
      Maybe he folds lower than 99 pairs.
      But with draw, bigger raise is better vs fish when i want to go allin.
