      42 hands VP 43, PFR 26. 3bet 6 (fish)

      Usually I dont open suited connectors, this time I did becasue all people are full stackers, and I expect them to give me credit from UTG, and there is big fish in BU who would pay me if I hit nuts.

      Is preflop ok to call and hope to hit nuts and give up if not?

      Is my raise size ok flop? I think he obviously induces me to bluff, so I was even afraid of JJ, but it is just 3 combos, and 18 combos QQ+ which pays me off.
      Is 4bet size ok? Usually I am not confronted with 4bet, so I dont know what should the size be. Anyway if he has QQ+ fish will never fold.

      Hi mla,

      Fishy guys usually have strong hands with these min 3-bets so calling for big hands is perfectly fine.

      As played your raise sizes are fine. He may not even fold AK (to the first raise) and I wouldn't be too worried about JJ as it's a really small part of his range.

      Your 4-bet size can be a bit bigger given the stack sizes so we leave less than a PSB for turn (if called).
