      Hello guys,

      some question again

      Villain is 1 tabling fish, active over 10 hands.

      - Is check behind flop better? Why? Why is CB better?
      - What to do with AK here? Just check and try to get to sd?

      River bluffcatch?

      Hey man, it's been a while. Exams?

      Regarding hand, the guy might be a fish but that means he calls wide preflop, right? If he calls wide it means he'll have more lower cards in his range that your average player and is also likely to overvalue his equity. That being the case I would give up your hand asap.

      If you had AK, you now have 6 reasonably clean outs plus you are more likely to have the best hand vs say AJ, A9. If you had some BD FD as well it would help a lot with 2 high cards ofc, compared to a low FD. I would approach it from equity perspective as well ofc.. AK is still pretty weak unless you have nutted redraws so I would give up quite often with that as well, probably less often than A4 on average but against unknown just as much.

      Keep at it, you can't always run great!

      @Hand: It would be a good spot to delay or even delay delay cbet against a passive fish since he will rarely fold any hand but will tell you he has no hand with the more checks you see. This was just so that the others think about it because you already asked about delayed cbetting in general on Skype and this is a reasonably example.
