      SB: fish, saw him folding to cbet once

      I am not sure is better to call or sqyeze. If I call - we will be 3way and I only can play with pairs and draws. I will not be able to bluff. But for such odds maybe I dont need to be able to bluff postflop.

      Flop and turn barrel because I have backdoor and turn FD.

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: looks fine. If anything we try to isolate the SB fish. So I rather 3-bet for that.

      Postflop: I'm not sure our turn barrel is that great because I can't see much other than pure floats folding there but we could assume that BTNs range is wide and can call wide on the flop.

      However, I do think that you should set up your stacks better where you are telling a better story.

      You have ~$23 effective and you are leaving 15.7 into a 15 pot. That would tell me that you aren't really paying attention much or are trying to bluff and keep it cheaper.

      So I would bet slightly bigger on flop/turn and leave ourselves a 2/3 pot bet or so on the river.

      I feel like I will hit flush so rarely that I dont even care about sizing and at the same time cheaper bluff price :)
