      Hi.

      He seems like some sort of loose fish. I don't mind just taking a passive line, c/c your entire stack off unless bad cards fall on the Turn (J/Q)

      vs a fish, I think you can also opt for a larger, more committing 4bet size preflop. So I don't mind making it $3 here. No need for balanced sizing.

      Thanks

      you think hes fish because of low Af? 1.3 because 32/24 is normal for just 42 hands.

      The sample is low, but low AF + the fact that he flats the 4bet makes me think that he's a fish.

      At microstakes, most regs learn that they should not be calling 4bets (not saying flatting 4bets is bad, it could be the best play under certain circumstances).

      32/24 is also on the looser side, maybe he's a LAG but my guess is that most regs at NL10 are just starting out learning some basic preflop strategy and they are usually tighter and less comfortable with playing so loose. so I think it's safe to assume that the looser players are likelier to be fishes.

      I could be wrong though, and if that's the case then betting once and giving up may be the best play
