      15 hands on him.

      Somehow his big raise made me believe he has jj+. fish also like to limp with KK.
      Mostly I would fold flop, but because he is fish, I didnt, I win so often against total air or top pair.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: your play here should be read dependent. In this case all we have is his really big raise which doesn't make much sense. So based on that I may go with my hand as well but it would require him to show up with Tx or JJ/QQ/KK type hands for us to show a profit in these spots.

      What do you do if he raises smaller? I'd most likely be more inclined to fold.

      I fold most of time when their play makes sense. If he raises to protect against draws, or if he raises some normal size (fish mostly raise with nuts mini, and bet large turn) then I would fold.

      Exactly, our default should be to fold to these smaller raises, especially on boards where there are many possible combinations of hands that beat us. For example J87tt.
