      CO Reg 17/14/2.5/4.6/26/527hands
      SB 21/8/62hands

      Pretty weird spot for me, not sure if 3betting pre is better with CO folding so much to 3bets. Blinds seemed pretty weak/passive so I wasn't really worried about being squeezed.

      Not really sure how to proceed postflop, folding flop seems way too weak.

      OTT once sb bet really small & the reg calls I raised for thin Value vs the fish since he can donk probably any Ax but he looks weak with his small bet.
      I think CO has to fold almost always because I think I rep sets well & he has to fold AK/AQ.
      I also raised for free SD since I thought if called I probably can't valubet river, or make better fold.

      So, I think my main concern is my turn raise, whether or not it's too thin. Thanks :)

      Pf is a call vs this guy. Threebetting sucks vs such a nit who doesnt call with worse
      Flop is a call but i would fold vs a turnbet

      U played it fine. Imo u have best hand on turn given action so u should raise. Maybe u can bet smallish like 1/3 or 1/2 again on river (unless u hab the read that he pot conttols ak)

      The threeway dynamic increases the likelihood of hom playing ak passively but i think theres always room for a thin value bet vs a looser opponent (but this guy is a nit so i think checking back rivrr is good)
