      Hello,

      Preflop I would fold this. BU looks active and SB as well.

      As played preflop, I would just cbet the flop here. We would love to pick up the pot here, plus we cna make him fold better kings.

      As played, checking back the turn is good.

      On the river I would probably call as well. We can be good one out of 11 times plus we will gain information about his limp/calling range.

      Best,
      Plamen

      As played, I would value bet/protect OTT. He's a fish so he can call with all sorts of stuff like 3x/5x and FDs, all of which you beat. It also saves you from having to hero call a lead OTR too. If he c/c OTT, and he checks the river I would check back and expect to win with Kh very often unless he hits the river.

      SB calls rarely. VPIP-PFR=6, and even less with my 4bb isolation.
      BU isnt that active, his gap is 13%. 4bb gets more credit as 3, so it's less I suppose here.

      OR?

      So, when raising here we have to know that we are raising for lets say thin value.

      What I mean is that we can't really make a lot of money with this hand, but could easily lose a lot, especially in multiway pots where we will have hard time playing.

      This said, people should be more inclined to play back at you when you isolate the fish where your range is rather weak and there are more dead money.

      Also, I wouldn't really count on what 30 hands tell me for the button, but we could probably think that he is most likely to be on the looser side, than on the tighter.
