      Hello guys,

      Flop + turn, I have to call I guess..

      River, I think he's going to x behind a lot so I lead and hope he calls better Jx. Or should we check and hope he bluffs?

      I thought this board connects with so many hands that he'd almost always have sd value

      Hi Farma,

      Preflop: I think our call OOp vs a fish is a bit on the loose side. We don't really have that much playability with TJo especially when missing the flop.

      Postflop: Do we have any reads on villain? his big bets polarize his range a lot so bluffcatching there in a spot where we can face 3-streets (for a full stack) is really light.

      As played I don't mind donking the river into him especially using that size. I doubt he folds any value hand and he was probably bluffing flop and turn?

      What's your plan if a 2h comes down on the river?

      Yes I'm starting to defend too loose after watching lnternet videos I think. What would you defend here preflop? Probably call this hands ones he opens <1.5x?

      It was a tough spot indeed and I had no reads but felt I couldn't fold flop nor turn which gave us outs in case he already had us. Fish can always spew like this?

      I wouldn't catch a 3th barrel :rolleyes:

      This guy is fishy and shorter so I don't want to call and play OOP without initiative with a weak range. I'd say that I'd 3-bet ATs+, AJo+, KQs, TT+. We can call pairs versus him, suited broadways, suited aces but I wouldn't look to call too light without more info about how much he can bluff or valuebet.

      And sure fish can spew like this but he is unknown and by default fishy players are passive until proven otherwise.
