      Preflop: I think this call is a little too loose but MP is a fish so calling can't be too bad. 3betting is also an option to seize the initiative and I think I would slightly prefer 3betting to 11bb here just to isolate the fish.

      Flop: Standard call.

      Turn: Really sick spot - I think 98 is a little too weak to call. If you somehow had K9 perhaps you could use that as the bottom of your calling range here. Of course if you knew he had more maniacal tendencies then you need to call here. That could be the case but the sample is a little too low.

      he is betting 3X pot here so I think you should be defending around the top 25% of your range which is probably full houses, flushes, and the strongest 9X (or maybe you should even fold 9X here). 98 is probably the weakest 9X, or maybe 97 so I think this is a fold here.
