      UTG calls $0.10, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.50

      $18.26 pot ($1.21 rake)
      Final Board: A 6 9 7 6
      BTN showed T 8 and won $17.05 ($8.02 net)
      Hero showed A K and lost (-$9.03 net)


      Preflop it's standard for me.

      Flop is standard too ,I have him hands like AX,PPs,some flush draws and OESD ,but I didnt expect ,that he would call with gutshot.

      Turn I continue in cbeting of course and fish shoves...his fold to cbet was 29% on the flop and 67% on the turn.

      I've had quite good pot odds and I didnt think he could hit his gutshot ,I thought I will play against something like pair+draw or maybe weaker ace ,flush draw...wasnt sure ...

      What to do here ?

      Hi TreyKing,

      Preflop: looks fine but since we are OOP and have two limpers we can make it 70c.

      Postflop: Flop we can pot it and usually, against passive fishy guys, we play bet fold when they take aggro actions on the turn.

      So for example ck/call, ck/raise or call and then raise. So I think this case is no different and we are much closer to a fold. How aggro was this guy? If he was passive so far then folding is fine. Otherwise he may stack off worse hands enough for us to make the call (~20-25% of the time)>
