      Stats:63/16/3bet 10,0/95 hands

      Preflop standard open imo ,I wanna play against the fish on SB in position.

      He calls.

      On the flop I hit the top pair with weak kicker ,nevermind I make cbet ,he has pretty wide range even from SB ,it was like 80% of hands.

      His fold to cbet on the flop is just 43% nad on the turn it's 33%.

      I cbet turn too ,I want some value from Kx and maybe some PPs and he could also have FD now ,so I think it's good for me .

      River isn't bad for me ,but it isn't even good ...it's scare card ,anyways...theres now smaller chance ,that he has better A and I beat two pairs too now so I go for some small value bet as his WTSD is about 55%.

      Hi Treyking,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Against a fish we can cbet our A2 here for thin value versus Kx or gutshots. It is a thin bet because all Ax that he plays are better than ours.

      We also have the option of checking and playing turn/river.

      As played I'd make turn a bit smaller as it's another thin valuebet and a few of the hands we beat have now improved to beat us (KQ, TJ).

      On the river I think it's mostly a check back unless villain is a huge station or you'd expect other Ax to raise by now.

      Ask yourself what we get value from vs what beats us. A passive fish will still have most Ax hands there on the river and even though we now beat KQ we only really get value form some Kx and rarely Qx.

      So, in this instance, on the flop we`re planning to get 2 streets of value?


      If so, which line would you prefer?

      Bet flop/turn, check back river or check flop, bet turn/river?

      I`m leaning towards the 1st one, because we have backdoor FD. In this case I would bet the flop bigger, around 0.4

      Without knowing a lot about the fish (and how often we can expect bluffs on the turn if we check) I would go with the first.

      I'd bet 1/2 flop and turn there.

      If we have some info about the fish we can check back the flop but what's our plan if he bets into us? Do we call 1 or 2 streets versus unknown fish or just fold turn?

      We do have 95 hands so we should know how aggro he and maybe even know how he sizes his bets but I don't see any of that info.
