      Better to flat against such a fish? He goes to showdown a lot and his calling range often dominates my hand - any Tx+ basically.

      'Checking' looks good to me.

      Raising for value, of course. He`s probably calling with 5x, 33/66-88, maybe even A-hi.

      Against the fish, this light value-bet is fine, I think. As played, I don`t think it will induce anything.

      Preflop play depends on how often you think u can isolate and also their flop fold to cbet.

      I agree with flop call. Dont raise cos i dont expect him to bet fold flop. On the turn i would bet 2-3 pot and i would halfpot river and fold to raise.
