      Hero ???

      thoughts on the flop: I the flop I have 3 options:

      1: DONK---> If I donk I expect CO to often call, but BU will continue only with strong hands, he will often fold, so I don't like donking

      2.Check/call---> BU will not cbet bluff with trash often in two opponets because he knows CO is a fish who likes to call. But still he will often cbet here with Kx, JJ-66

      3.Check/raise---> By check/raising we will kick out of the pot CO, and BU can fold his worst hands that can pay us on latter streets if we just check /call.

      So I think check call is the best decision on the flop.

      Hi Staselu,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we can consider donking like 0.9 or so given that the PFR (BTN) doesn't seem to aggro. On the other hand he did iso big which means his range is stronger and could possibly cbet more often.

      But with a fish in CO I just prefer to take initiative myself and it's not like BTN will fold anything that would cbet anyway.
