      22 hands on MP, his stack size => fish
      SB 46 hands, VPiP 36, fish
      BB 33 hands, 48 VPiP fish

      I 3bet with plan to go all in against fish shorty. I 3bet smaller so I can fold if other guys 4bet.

      Should I be scared of 2 fish guys joining 3bet pot ?
      I was not sure if I should bet river 50% pot? he showed weakness so he doesnt have set, or K.

      hi

      how loose is the fish? are you sure he jams AT A9 A8 A7 KJ QJ? If not i dont see too much reason in 3betting your hand and hoping to stack off with him.

      i would definitely 3bet if he had 100bb though, way too much value to isolate him and play HU in position with initiative.

      As played I think a fish~s 3B cold calling range is very wide. so you can easily call flop and turn and fold river. he should have enough random draws and worse JX hands to make this a profitable play.

      His VPiP was around 50, so his range is wide.

      I thought it is ok to 3bet him, even if he is not going to push weaker than AJ.
      Because his wide range, he will fold to 3bet very often, and sometimes he will jam e.g TT, where I still have nice equity.

      ok.

      i think the more relevant stat is his PFR (if he is 50/10, i would not like your AJ 3bet). If it´s >25% I think it´s great.
