      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with A :heart: K :diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.17, BTN raises to $0.45, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1, BTN calls $0.55

      Flop: ($2.07) Q :diamond: 3 :diamond: 7 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BTN calls $1

      Turn: ($4.07) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($4.07) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.00, Hero folds

      On the river we beat only AJ and KJ =/ If there are any. What if he bets 50 cents? Still fold? It's just so mean :f_mad:

      I think it would be better just to call preflop and play with your hand OOP. As played i dont know even why are we cBetting here. This fish will hardly fold and of course we have a plan to fold on further streets since we dont want to bluff fish.

      I didn't call preflop because I didn't want to play AK OOP :) It's a profitable shove against a fish, and I didn't really expect him to call 4bets.

      I CB flop because I have overcards and backdoor flush. I also expect him to miss this board, and even a fish should have enough wisdom to fold this flop with air after calling a 4bet.

      Hello,

      Preflop do you think he's going to stack off with worse here?
      I think 4betting is an option as long as you are planning to stack off. If we are not, I do agree with Alan here, that we could probably just call him, even though we are OOP, since we could probably play the hand profitable enough against a fish.

      As played, if he folds to cbets enough I don't mind cbetting here.

      Once he calls, giving up is fine. I'm not really willing to invest any more money since he could end up calling down with something like Q2 or so.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Q2 :f_confused: He called a 4bet :)

      It's hard to put him on a hand here. Most likely it's TT-JJ, or a bluff with AK/AJs.
