      SB wins 196 BB

      Fish likes to bluff raise on paired board, so I see it as bluff and shove with 6 outs in the case he has overpair.

      This is a very easy check back on the Flop. Why would you want to bet and let him raise you? AK high has a lot of showdown value on low paired Flops vs wide calling ranges.

      Just call most Turns and Rivers. Q/J are generally bad cards but I will only consider folding if I get 2 bad cards like Q+J or Q+T perhaps. If we get another pairing card that would be really great, or more low cards like 3/4/5/6/7.
