      What do u think MP's range is after calling the flop?
      Do u think he 4bets QQ and KK preflop? Do u think a fish defends only pocketpairs preflop?
      If he is a fish shouldnt he have more connector type hands?

      I would suggest using equilab to calculate your equity vs his turn calling range. Remove KK and maybe discount QQ by half because he may/may not 4bet that preflop. And give him way more mid suited connectors and more suited broadways.

      Thank you!

      Then the flop calling range is the next (and probably he call with theese hand on the turn):JJ-TT, 88, 66, QdQh, QdQs, QhQs, ATs, KTs, QTs+, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s. Against theese, i have 62% EQ in the flop. So the flop bet was good. The betsize is good?

      My turn equity 40%. I can't fold when he pushes. I think in this spot, his calling range the same as his pushing range. What do you think?

      I think 99 and 77 are definitely calling flop too. Flop is a clear bet for sure.

      When u add that to his turn range, your equity falls below 40%. And i disagree with your statement. I think he will usually check back JJ QQ TX on the turn while pushing his twopairs and sets and straights.

      Thus this is an easy checkfold.
