      BTN: $27.04 (108.2 bb)
      SB: $33.07 (132.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A:diamond: Q:club:
      Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.75, SB folds, BB raises to $2, Hero calls $1.25, BTN calls $1.25

      Flop: ($6.10) Q:spade: 2:spade: 6:diamond: (3 players)
      BB bets $2, Hero calls $2, BTN raises to $8.25, 2 folds

      BB is a fish
      BU: 18/15 raise cbet F 10% WTS 19% W$SD 57% WWF 46 10k hands AF% 45/30/28, 3bet vs UTG 3%

      It's thought spot becasue I show weakness by calling fish. I was a bit afraid of fish because I've thought he can have AA/KK by such a small 3b. When fish folded I could have best hand, I don't see to much hands in vilian range. He 3b 3% after decent sample so I can assume he 3b QQ+,AK+.

      Hi Ilidek,

      Preflop: If we were HU I don't mind calling there but since BTN will get a great price to call he will always come along as well and we will be playing inbetween two guys with a hand that doesn't flop often.

      So I'd rather 4-bet small to try and iso BB fish just for us.

      Postflop: As played I would raise the flop. Villain can easily raise a KQ or AQ here because our line (and the small fish cbet) smells like weakness.

      Put yourself in his shoes, how does the bet small + call line look?
