      Hero wins 72.16 BB

      I didnt 3bet because midstackers are going to shove so often from that position and I am almost always going to be behind. Since they play good preflop (easy) I think it is better to play postflop where they are too spewy.

      I would fold to this donk on flop but since he is huge fish I call. River bet/fold larger?

      Hi GingerKid,

      I think that not 3-betting versus him is a mistake.

      What range do you expect a midstack to shove versus you here? Do they have a calling or folding range?

      This midstack appears to be on the fishier side over this sample, given his VPIP/PFR so I'd definitely want to 3-bet for value and isolation.

      Also, the other midstacks are not very aggro so we can't expect them to shove.

      As played I think we still have the best hand on the flop so calling is fine. On the turn i think we can consider putting in a small raise for value from Jx, other Ax and draws.

      As played I'd bet slightly larger on the river for value.
