      CO: $3.21 (160.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.67 (83.5 bb)
      SB: $1.77 (88.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.37 (118.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.28 (114 bb)
      MP: $2.27 (113.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.04, CO folds, BTN calls $0.04, SB folds, Hero calls $0.02

      The villains is 38|09|Agg%:38|hands:87. Is a 3-bet an option here? I think we might have preferred 3-betting, since we are OOP. Plus we could get rid of the BU and play HU with MP. I don't know how to use information that the villain is a fish and opened 2 BB though...are we ahead of his range, or we would turn our hand into a bluff? That's why I just called.

      Flop: ($0.13) J T 7 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, MP calls $0.10, BTN calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.43) 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, MP calls $0.32, BTN folds

      River: ($1.07) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP folds

      Bet/bet/bet for value? River is ugly, but I definitely prefer bet/fold to check/fold and check/call. Because if we checked, weaker hands would just check behind, and only the flush would bet.

      Hi German,

      Preflop: I'd 3-bet here for value vs either of them. I don't mind if I iso MP or BTn (he seems fishy based on stack).

      Postflop: We are donking into them but since they opened small and may check back a lot I don't mind it (although MP seems aggro over this small sample).

      However I'd pot flop/turn.
