      CO 89/23 epic fish
      BTN http://pbrd.co/YLRHcM
      BB is an agressive midstacker

      Not sure about the preflop play, with a midstacker behind. I usually just call these, if the regular is IP on the fish.
      Postflop? I wanted to bet-bet-bet against the fish, but after the reg called on the flop, I got a bit confused. His range is like ATo+, maybe A2s+, sets, flushes, and draws, so check/decide on the turn, because the pot is too big for bet/folding(?) If the fish bet and he raises, I snapfold, if the fish checks, and he bets big I still check/fold. As the fish bet this small, I thought I can call and play the same on the river. What do you think?

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: with an aggro midstacker behind I prefer a 3-bet myself and if the fish is that epic he'll call our 3-bet wide.

      Postflop: Since the reg calls after the fish I don't think he will have that many slowplays. So I rather bet/fold turn again.

      i think that check/calling is the worse option since we just give them both great odds to chase the draw. Do you really think BTN really has a hand when he calls twice, especially a small bet?
