      I know EP is a fish since I had more hands on him with other ipoker account. I know he calls super loose. Should I just r to $1,60 preflop or what?

      When flop comes I'm not so happy to bet into 2 especially since BB is a unknown. When BB bets I go for fold but I just go with the feeling and call this flop. I know EP doesn't have Kx hand.

      T is ok card. I put him on random FD or some 9x/ 86, even 7x.

      On R we have akward spot since there is only pot size bet. Calling a shove would definitely be overplaying our hand. When he offers us such a good price we have to call. It looks inviting but he might "vbet" some 9x.

      Can I cbet next time this flop? Since I know EP doesn't have often Kx in his range. I didn't want to do it because of BB.

      Preflop: Looks fine. If you want to use exploitive raise sizing vs the fish, you should have tested him earlier with weaker hands like ATo. Raise larger and see if he's still calling or folding. If he still calls a lot, then do it with your monsters.

      Flop: I would fold when 2 players put money in the pot. If there was only one other player, then I think a check/call is reasonable. I do agree that the fish will be calling with all sorts of rubbish, but I think that it's still very difficult to play your hand here. Either one of them could easily have a king which means that you are crushed here. You also have difficulty playing in a wide variety of turns, including any or Q/T/A
