      Hi.

      BU = Fish -> Don't slowplay anything vs a passive guy who doesn't bet much when checked to, but makes the mistake of calling way too much.

      Why would you ever want to slowplay here? Betting should be your default line and you would need a good reason to justify checking here (You know someone always bets when checked to, then you can c/r or maybe c/c and induce multiple streets of bluffing).
