      BTN: $2.20 (110 bb)
      SB: $3.21 (160.5 bb) 40/12/fld cbet 47 75/pf agg 11 14 19/WTSD 31/3bet 14,5/ch/raise flop 9(23)/hands 203 marked as weak
      BB: $1.02 (51 bb) 44/10/fld cbet 100/3bet 0/ hands 69
      MP: $2.26 (113 bb)
      CO: $2.57 (128.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 :diamond: 6 :diamond:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB folds

      preflop the open is ok i think . The blinds seems fishy.

      Flop: ($0.14) 9:spade: 6:spade: 5:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, BTN bets $0.11, SB raises to $0.47, BTN raises to $1.55, SB raises to $3.15 and is all-in, BTN calls $0.59

      on the flop i was tanking a bit. My thought is : Fold isnt an option with top 2 pair against a fishy opp even though the board isnt great + he seems passive postflop however he ch/raise some times . Another think is the sizing which is big However there are 55 , 78 that beat me and the rare 99 66. So i am between call and raise . With a call the prob is that there are a lot of turns that sucks . So i end up raising /get it in . Which i think is ok cause there are also worst 2 pairs or pairs + draws that might call. What u think ?

      Turn: ($4.42) 5:heart: (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.42) J:heart: (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      I agree with your play here for reasons you mentioned. This fish is often going to c/r stuff like 77/88/TT/JJ or some draws and we are doing very well vs his overall c/r range. At the same time, 96s is strong enough to stack off but rather vulnerable, so many bad cards could come on later streets such as a 5/7/8/A/K.

      Nice hand.
