      48/2/1, fcbet 41, 242h

      call cbet w J high on 8xx, checks till sd

      28/23/2.7, 3bet 8.7, fcbet 55, 203h

      SB can have some Kx in his range, but he could squeze KQ for value, so maybe KJ is left.

      He also might have some PPs like 55-88 and those are not in too good shape to call a cbet.

      I have some outs for trips and 2 pair.

      FIsh can call very wide but he is passive so not a problem, I can check turn and river and still win showdown I think vs fish.

      cbet size - SB even when noticing that I am weak might not bluff raise too often when there is fish, so probably thats ok, and more thin value from fish when he is getting better odds.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      Isolating weak opponent with A3o is fine. Make sure your blinds aren't ultra-aggressive before you make these plays.

      Flop cbet is fine. You are basically value-betting vs the CO and semi-bluffing vs the SB. It's a little thin but should be ok.

      When SB raises into a 3way pot with one of the players being a bit of a calling station it's an easy fold. He's probably not bluffing, and you have bottom pair.
