      Preflop: Standard squeeze. 3bet is by far the best play, and the EV of calling would be significantly lower I would think. BU is a fish, which makes flatting even worse of a play. We should aim to go for max value vs all the worse broadway hands.

      Postflop: I think c/r is fine, our hand is probably the best when he shows so much weakness. Turn size is not good, just bet 5, we can easily ship the River if he calls. Now when he jams I think he may have some turned two pair like A8 J8 so I am fine with folding.
