      Okay, some more fancy fish poker here.

      Preflop. I think our sample sucks, but if it's really 29, or close, we can value 3B. Flatting seems to be a little bit safer overall.

      Flop. I have no idea why I float this flop. In theory, he should not CB here way too often with air. I assumed that the guy behind is playing check/fold, but even without him it's a fold the flop, right?

      Turn. As played, I think the turn card is really good to try and save the hand :) There is a ton of flushes in my perceived range.

      I think preflop flatting is fine. We can 3bet if we expect him to call with worse here.

      On the flop I think folding here is by far the best move.
      We have a gutshot but then, he isn't cbetting without equity here plus we have a guy behind.

      Turn is a little bit tricky here. I don't mind bluffing here if we expect him to play straight forward and fold something like AK or so.
      If we go for a raise though I think this is too big and something around $1.5 will do the job here.
