      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $22.70 (113.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $39.50 (197.5 bb)
      BB: $20.20 (101 bb)
      UTG: $21.50 (107.5 bb)
      MP: $20.30 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $8.49 (42.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.10, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.60) 2 6 Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $2.40, Hero folds

      $2.60 pot ($0.13 rake)
      Final Board: 2 6 Q
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$1.20 net)
      MP mucked and won $2.47 ($1.27 net)

      He is fish, open limps w 95s

      He opens 6 bb so I just call, just in case I am behind, I keep pot smaller.

      Flop cbet is also big, but not pot sized. Pot sized cbets are bluffs often but this is also followed by big preflop raise, which imo could be not a bluff. So I gave up.

      His range could contain TT+, AQ+ preflop, maybe with underpair he would not bet so big.

      Maybe I should call and reevaluate - I have backdor draw and his turn agresson gets lower.

      As played cx/call is terrible u are OOP and he gave u rly bad odds to call. I would go for 3b/broke I can't see what is his RFI ?

      raise first in Mp is 30 (20)

      vs 6 bb did not want to go broke preflop, just play bit carefully. He could have stronger range.

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: I would agree with beseventh here. Fish can have anything there and while it's true that some have strong rangers with big raises it's not always the case.

      I would also 3-bet there for what I think it's value.

      I can see your point that he seems strong but if you flop an A or K you aren't folding anyway so we would lose our money if he is indeed on a strong range here.
