      I probably have huge leaks in deep stacks, but this time I've decided to stay due to these 2 weak players. I am probably playing too tight in deep stacks.
      MP is a reg 28/21/af 3.4/87h/
      SB is a huge fish 59/31/small sample/wts 24
      BB is one more huge fish, 54/0/~40h/wts 34

      I thought due to I'm in position vs reg I can 3bet such hand and play postflop agressive. But the hand turned not in a right way, especially when I have seen these 2 stupid calls of my 3bet. On the flop I was really scared of KQ.
      So what about my line including preflop? Turn sizing? Is this push ok vs his checks?

      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($36.88)
      BB ($101)
      UTG ($32.41)
      UTG+1 ($69.54)
      Hero ($67.48)
      BTN ($63.16)

      BB antes $0.05
      UTG antes $0.05
      UTG+1 antes $0.05
      Hero antes $0.05
      BTN antes $0.05
      SB antes $0.05

      Dealt to Hero 7:club: 8:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.70, Hero raises to $2.75, fold, SB calls $2.65, BB calls $2.50, UTG+1 calls $2.05

      FLOP ($11.30) 9:heart: J:diamond: T:spade:

      SB checks, BB checks, UTG+1 bets $8, Hero calls $8, SB folds, BB folds

      TURN ($27.30) 9:heart: J:diamond: T:spade: 7:heart:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $13.25, UTG+1 calls $13.25

      RIVER ($53.80) 9:heart: J:diamond: T:spade: 7:heart: 2:club:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $43.43 (AI), ??

      Hi.

      Preflop is a call for me. It would be fine normally but with two huge fishes in the blinds u should call here. They are going to overcall ur 3b with a rly wide range of hands

      Flop: raising here - we have the second nuts and we beat more combos of sets than KQs.

      Turn: betting for value vs sets.

      River: he probably folds his sets on the river now so i check back.

      Are you raise-folding flop? Because if we get push here, we are drawing dead with 0 equity even vs fishes.

      Thats a good question. I think we could raise fold vs the reg cos i doubt he would ever push anything less than kq here. Vs the fishes i would stack off cos u would see sets and sometimes even qq or kk being overplayed

      Also I was asking about turn sizing, but after his check on the turn he has more likely set or dual pair, which means I have to bet more. And it seems this was a very expensive mistake postflop for me.

      Also how much do you want to raise? The problem of raising is he can easily call us with KQ and check turn, so we will be able to bet blank turn, but it will be again very expensive...

      I think ur halfpot bet on the turn is fine after calling flop.

      If u want to raise flop, pick a raise size which leaves u aroind 66-75% pot size bet on the turn so u can just jam. So i think anywhere between 20-25$ seems alright.
