      Hey Guys!

      Villains:
      CO - 50/6/50h fish
      BTN - Looks solid/LAG over 50hands.
      BB - unknown. Looks rather solid

      Preflop:
      I think this is a clear 3B.
      Hands I would call here: ATs, AJs, KJs, KQs, 77, 88, 99, TT. Also to let the fish enter the pot.

      Hand I would 3B here:
      Bluff/Semi-bluff: A8s, A9s, 9Ts, TJs, QTs, QJs, KTs.
      Value: 3B/Fold (AQ, QKo, AJo) 3B/Broke JJ+, AK

      Thoughts about this please? I'm trying to improve my PFgame because I feel like I have a lot of leaks there.


      Flop:
      We have 2 overs and a BDSD. This board def. hits his range better then mine and that's why I went for the check/fold.

      Do you agree with me that it's fine to CB AdJx?

      Why do you make it so small preflop? :rolleyes: Not even 3x oop and with a limper :O

      This was definitely a mistake. I should have made it $6.

      Hi.

      I think calling is an option when co is such a huge fish. We get to own him postflop.

      I dont think the threebet size is that impt. Isoraiser made it huge pre as opposed to a three bb oprn so we dont need to threebet so largee

      Nothing to say abt flop just a rly terrible flop for us.

      Overall i think u played it fine.

      Can you or another coach still give his thoughts on this?:

      Hi

      The bigger the fish the more u eanna flat everything.

      This 50/6 guy is a huge whale imo. So i flat everything and three bet AKo only. Of cos if bb is aggro then maybe that might make me more inclined to 3b more as opposed to flatting snd getting squeezed

      Ur dynamic with bu is also impt. If u 3b bluff him a lot its impt to 3b youe qq jj ak for value as part of a nalsnced game plan. If u are more passive then i orefer just usong a bluff three bet range of kxs and qxs while flatting most strong broadways and pairs ans suited connector stuff like jts

      AJo could go either way. I probably flat if thete are no other unfsvourable conditions for flatting (like if bb is aggro)

      Isn't it true that those offsuit hands like AJo, KTo, KJo play pretty badly OOP and multiway? That's why I'd like to call only suited hands.

      Does this make sense?

      Yes u are very right

      Which is why i have mixed feelingd abt flatting AJo. I think it could go either way.
      U will habe to weigh the vatious factors and decide. If bu is an ultrawhale then i just flat and hope he does something stupid postflop.
