      Hi Lunitis,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that with a fish behind us and a reg in front of us we can skip the cbet. The other way around I wouldn't mind it because the reg would have to act before the fish and we would have position on the fish.

      If we cbet I'd also make it larger with my entire range since we mostly have a strong range betting there.

      As played I think a river bet is fine since we can still rep Jx/KK type hands (and some other full houses).
