      pre I just called cause he is super hiper agressive and I think I can make money on him even if I will continue only if I hit. Besides I did not want to make huge pot and bluffcatch with K high.
      What range would you 3bet here and what hands would you just call?
      If I want to 3bet Do I need above 50% equity vs his continuation range or its not neccesery cause he will pay me off when I hit?
      As palyed I flopped nuts:) so called it down.

      Preflop: 3betting is way better. We want to isolate him from the other players at the table. If this were SB vs BB then I think calling is fine. But I don't want having SB and BB come along and get their shot at stacking the fish.

      Flop and Turn: Given bet sizing and the fact that we are ahead of so many draws, it's a very easy call on these 2 streets.

      River: Still a blank. I honestly think that vs an aggro fish we are definitely good here 35-50% of the time. Does he have any bet sizing tell? If a reg uses this bet size to bet, you can be sure that he is very heavily weighted towards value. When a fish offers us such great pot odds, we should almost always take it with a hand as strong as 2P2K. I think he could definitely play stuff like T9/QT in this fashion as well.
