      note:
      squeze in SB vs 2 fish w AJo, another reg (?) cold 4bets, he ships 125 bb deep

      6 bb isolation might look strong but he raised earlier 6 bb, but I did not know with what hands, but I believe it not necesarry is the nuts vs such fish.

      WHat aoubt my cbet sizing? I wanted protection and fish might have lot of Ax hands in his range so should be fine. The question how much FDs there can be in this spot?

      hi.

      i dont like the 3b preflop. firstly we want the fish to enter as well. secondly we may end up isolating ourselves against a really strong range of hands. calling is significantly better IMO.

      as played i would just halfpot the flop. it´s already so bloated. you are basically telling them that you have an ace and they should fold everything.

      I agree this is an option. But he folds to 3bets so rarely, so he calls or 4bets very light and my AK is so good agaisnt this, so why not use this oportunity? On flop we might miss and rarely take down the pot in 3way.

      Also as the note says he can ship 125 bb w AJo vs cold 4bet
