      Is preflop call ok against fish with KQo?
      Is steal ok on flop IP when fish is in pot?

      I should probably not bet turn, because 4 doesnt change much, but he could have some kind of gutshot, 7x, 55,66, 33, 22, overcards, which I try to fold on river if scare card comes.

      River bet larger? I hate when they fold once I hit :)

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop call is fine. You have position and more than likely a slightly equity advantage vs his range.

      I'm not sure your flop steal is that great, vs a fish who may not be folding often, and a SB cold-call who may have a reasonably tight-range. I'd probably check-back and hope to spike K or Q.

      I don't like turn barrel. I'm just not convinced CO is folding anything he calls flop with.

      However, I am discussing these lines in isolation. As part of a 3barrel strategy your flop + turn bets are a lot more favourable. If CO calls flop and turn with a wide range, that range is usually then susceptible to river bluffs.

      However, I think 3barrelling here is needlessly high variance and unnecessary in order to beat the stakes.
