      Hi DaPhunk,

      If the fish is aggro that means that he can have a lot of weaker draws and there are many draws on that board.

      I would 3-bet but I wouldn't make it that much as I want to give villain a chance to make a mistake plus we are super deep. Something like $9 would be fine.
      Turn is an interesting card but to shove 200 BB seems a bit excessive. Villain clearly has something and while worse draws are possible so are many other pairs that he won't fold.

      I think that if we raised smaller we could bet smaller and ck/fold river UI.

      Yea, CO's flop 3bet size on flop seems huge, I would have been inclined to make it $8.5 or so.

      In CO's shoes on turn I am probably feeling very sick but I don't think I would be able to continue vs that shove. If Calling may be ok and +ev then folding may be a small mistake, but if calling isn't ok then It would likely be a big error. Given those two options I'd rather opt for the fold on turn.

      If the MP fish is aggressive enough maybe just calling flop could be just as +ev as raising? We may be able to eek out a lot of money when we hit a flush and he hits a straight, or he hits two pair etc than putting the aggression straight back on him.

      I think without an aggressive dynamic vs fish I would like calling flop, and if I'd been raising him and abusing him in the past I like a 3bet.

      Yes, I agree that even the flop can be a call without dynamics and this deep.

      On the turn is really ugly and yes we usually are not huge favorites.
