      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:spade: 9:spade:

      fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) J:heart: T:club: 7:spade:

      BTN shows 4:spade: K:heart: (One Pair, Sevens) (Pre 53%, Flop 12%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 307 BB

      280 hands 49/21 3b 21. cbet 65, fold to 3bet 8%

      Is it ok call preflop against fish? I didnt want 3bet because he would call often IP.

      Is check raise ok here on drawy board with no kicker? On turn blank I planned to check call, but since I had straight I bet. River fold? I hoped I at least split with 9x, but it seems that he is so much sure that I bluff when check raising. I started check raising with any top pair except A and it worked so far each time, they call with air mostly.

      What's his fold to Flop cbet? I actually do not mind making a really small 3b to like 7 or 8BB just to seize the initiative and isolate the fish from BB. But calling is certainly +EV too.

      As played there's really no point in check/raising the Flop. Few worse hands call (maybe only T9 and T8) and better hands never fold. You bloat up the pot unnecessarily OOP. Just c/c with the intention of calling most turns and you can decide on River.

      I am baffled by his hand :) and this guy is such a huge whale, that this is clearly a one-off exception.

      As I told, people in Ipoker NL20 just never fold to check raise. When I say never, I mean it happens once in 100 times that someone folds.
      I didnt see this guy calling check raise before this hand, but I make generalization just because I dont see anyone folding to my check raise.

      Probably the reason is that there are 10 people in total who play everyday so I suppouse they are reggs and others are all new players, I dont have statistics of them so I suppouse Ipoker is full of fish.
