      he can be isoolating fish with wider range so I call even OOP. Is it ok? He is not too agro postgflop as well so its good for me.

      He will not cbet bluff so much I guess so I donkbet.

      hello,
      preflop i tend to 3bet these hands for better playability, maybe leak?

      As played i like donking here and going for value from fish.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Don't like 3betting here, calling is rly standard. If we 3bet we isolate ourselves vs stronger early position hands, and besides we want to let the fish into the pot. 3betting just forces him out.

      Flop: Leading is good with TPTK with a fish in the pot and the reg will play very straightforwardly vs us since we have mostly value hands here like sets.

      Would you 3bet AQ here?
      what do you 3bet as bluff when you want to put presure on a guy who is isloating fishes a lot?

      I think we can 3bet AKo cos it's strong enough to 3b for value, but doesn't play too well multiway. I don't want to turn AQ into a bluff so I flat here as well and we can play more hands with the fish anyway - Just lead Flop if you flop TPTK.

      As for bluffing, assuming you are talking about an exploitive, imbalanced 3betting strategy in this exact situation, i'll pick hands which are not strong enough to call. Maybe 87s and some worse suited connectors, and maybe some K9s type of hand. I would flat AXs and suited broadways here always.
