      UTG: $109.74 (219.5 bb)
      MP: $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      CO: $52.12 (104.2 bb)
      BTN: $52.39 (104.8 bb)
      Hero (SB): $50.75 (101.5 bb)
      BB: $62.96 (125.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2:club: 2:heart:
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, BTN folds, Hero calls $1.25, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($4.50) 9:diamond: 2:spade: 8:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1, CO raises to $5, Hero calls $5, BB folds

      Turn: ($15.50) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8.50, Hero calls $8.50

      River: ($32.50) 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      CO loose aggressive and BB was a fish over a small sample. => i decided to call preflop, because the fish will often come along.

      On the flop, i thought about leading, but the board was dry, so i decided to go for ch/c flop and lead most turns if the fish calls.

      After the fish donked and CO raised, i think just calling is best to keep the fish in.

      This turn was not very good, because JT got there and i`m don`t think that a weaker hand will call a shove, so i decided to call again and decide on the river?

      Preflop: Without the Fish here I would usually fold.

      Flop: I think checking is a mistake. Just lead out for value. The flop isnt one which will be bluffed at too often and if it gét checked around we could potentially lose a street of value (the 3rd bet usually comprises 60-70% of the overall value you get from someone, assuming you have the nuts and get called by worse for three streets.

      Turn: I agree it's really hard to get called by worse given 3way dynamic, at the same time i think using a set as a bluff catcher seems pretty weak. but the 2nd option seems like the better one
