      Hey !!

      Villain is 75/25/4h 1 table fish.

      What to do vs his raise? Could it be QXh? Or do you think fish prefers to call that?

      I think it's a fold but I also believe that's not the problem in the hand.

      I think you have to bet close to pot on the flop and shove turn given stack sizes. Yes, turn is not awesome which is why you now bet/fold but if you shove it you still get value from one heart hands, T8, T9, J8, etc.

      Problem is:

      If we bet $9 OTF we will prob only get action from Qx and FD's but we loose value from 8x, PP's, GS's..

      Then we have a pot of $27 OTT with 20.7$ eff left which looks fine :)

      Something I have been doing here that's working well lately is c/r flop vs fish that are aggro at all meaning they will bet often when checked to. Whenever you check to a fish a lot of times they will just auto bet everything, so this way we get value from all of their bluffs and still stack all of their Qx hands. obv once in a while he will check back but its not really a huge deal since it prob means they were just folding to cbet anyway. Also I think you played this good, just b/f turn. Sizing is good.

      C/r is an option if you know people bet IP vs a missed cbet a bit. Since Hero only has 4 hands on the villain we could probably flip a coin whether he bets IP vs a missed cbet or not.

      @Farma: Since when do fish fold a pair in 3bet pot vs one bet? Same goes for a draw. :)
