      Stats:48/10/3bet 0,0/21 hands

      Preflop : Fish limping in from BB,so basically I chose to raise it.

      Flop:I hit a pair so cbet.

      Turn:Second pair and fish just donked so I raised ,because I think he could have weaker two pairs ,maybe some bad played overpairs (I've seen it already by fishes)
      or some Q of course.

      River:all in basically ,with so small stack behind the line.

      What should I do in spots like this one ?

      Player is almost unknown ,as I have only 21 hands with him ,but I know he's fish ,he didnt have full stack ,and limping from SB isnt good imo :s_biggrin:

      Hi Treyking,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I don't mind the flop cbet to try and take the pot down and get some thin value.

      His big donk on the turn (pot) polarizes his range a lot so I don't even mind calling there to give him a chance to continue bluffing (if he is). If he has 2p or better, or even Qx he loses all the money on the river and there are virtually no draws to be afraid off.

      So I would call turn and shove river (or call if he does it)>

      Yes ,call is better I think ,because we can get some more value from his bluff instead of raising ,because when we raise it ,he probably fold bluffs and continue with strong made hands ,as his range is polarized . is this thinking right ?

      Against aggressive fishy guys definitely. Or we raise smaller to induce a potential 3-bet from them.
