      Hey GingerKid,

      It's worth keeping in mind that you need fold-equity to make your flop + turn barrels profitable. Against fish you want to be playing draws passively for the most part. Hit your draw, then get the money in.

      I don't know how often these guys are folding, it looks like SB is likely to be a fish. CO is not obvious yet over 25 hands.

      You likely have no fold equity on flop vs SBs 1BB donk. It may be ok to raise anyway to build a pot, but flatting wouldn't actually be ridiculous if you have no fold-equity. You only have A-high at this stage.

      Again on the turn it may be that the best option is just to check. Theoretically Q is ok to barrel, and your line looks very strong, but if SB is never folding anything he calls flop with you are basically spewing money.

      I think river is a good card to barrel. CO may not actually be a fish, and his range is not that strong given he did not raise turn or river. I'd tank for a bit and then bet around 38BB.
