      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, MP raises to 3.5 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 11 BB, fold, MP calls 7.5 BB

      Hero bets 11.5 BB, MP calls 11.5 BB

      Hero wins 43.7 BB

      170 hands, 36 VP, PFR 22, F23b 38%, FCB 48%

      I think fish could have many worse Ax, Kx and float flop, but also PP. Is it maybe better bet flop ch/call turn?

      Given starting positions, the best play is to check/fold (assuming he is a normal regular).

      Think about his range Preflop here. It's mostly going to be AQ, KQs, AJs, and mid pocket pairs. Which part of his range is actually going to fold the Flop? Only Ajs which is like 10% of his range at the very most. I think barreling here is spew in my opinion. check/fold is the best play on the Flop.

      HOWEVER, we know that this guy is probablyh a fish. He has 54BB only and yet he makes such huge 3.5bb raises.

      I think your alternative option is to check/call the Flop. I think AK high is good a lot of the time, and I expect him to call the 3bet preflop with a ton of worse broadways and mid suited connectors.
