      Hi Cooperman,

      Preflop: I think your raise is way too big for a CO open in a 5 handed game. 3x should be better.

      As played what range do you have villain on?

      He is representing some slowplayed full houses but what sets don't raise the flop? The only hand I'd be afraid off would be 65cc and since all flush draws missed I think we may have a call on the river if villain has shown aggressive tendencies.

      hadn't really played any hands with him but thought he was a fish. Yer I think any set raises before hand but I think 23,34 and 45 are all part of his range as well as 6x and ax

      about the 4x i used to do and I was succesful with it as it exploits peoples tendencies at this limit to be passive, however I think I might just open to 4x from MP, UTG and SB and 3x it from CO and BTN, does this sound good to you?

      Yes that sounds good.

      It's true that it's all about players but also our ranges. The smaller we make it from steal positions the better price we give ourselves which means we can steal with more hands.

      HE could have slowplayed Ax's here, too, so why not to call..

      I have doubts about cbet here. This guy is a big fish, he will hardly fold Ax or any hit here. The only hands we can force out are some random trash hands like JTo, T9o and so on but with BDFD+overcards he may find a reason to call here with them. So we will be put in the same spot on the turn OOP and I doubt we can successfully double barrel bluff vs him. But he is passive so he may check behind Ax and hits here or bet small and he will probably rare bet big for us not to be able to call profitably. So imho check is better on the flop.

      As a fish he has a lot of those random hands you are pointing.

      He plays a ton of broadways and Qx/Kx hands plus we have equity in the pot.

      Without countin our equity our bet has to work 40-45% of the time.
