      BB: $12.15 (24.3 bb)
      UTG: $70.90 (141.8 bb)
      MP: $44.05 (88.1 bb)
      CO: $203.65 (407.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $116.40 (232.8 bb)
      SB: $54.30 (108.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J A
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) J 4 A (2 players)
      CO bets $3.50, Hero raises to $10, CO calls $6.50

      Turn: ($23.75) J (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $16.60, CO calls $16.60

      River: ($56.95) 6 (2 players)
      CO checks


      he's a weaker fishy reg , pasive/slowplays postflop 27/17 opens 29% from CO

      I am finding myself in these river spots not sure what part of his range should I target with what sizing? I mean should I be overbet shoving to get called by 44, or should I bet smaller to make him call more often with AK?

      Hi Dozeer,

      Preflop: If he is a fishy reg can we not 3-bet here preflop for thin value and to isolate him?

      Postflop: He is polarizing his range with that pot size bet on the flop so I think we can even raise larger and expect to get called just about the same. The reason being is that I'd like to get as much money in the pot as possible because we are exceptionally deep here.

      With that being said we should bet turn larger and I think that given the missed draws we can look at the overbet shove and he may make some hero calls with AK/AQ type hands. His draws fold anyway.

      thanks Bogdan,

      pretty much the answer I was looking for.

      Good read on his flop bet, I should have read it as him being polarized and make larger bets.

      And you have a point there I can make small iso 3bet pre.

      cheers
