      Hi.

      Preflop: So you know he's a fish cos he's some one-tabler? If you don't have reads you should probably flat here but I shall assume you do have some reads.

      Flop: Good overpair in 3b pot = Never folding here. Just raise over and hope for the best. Sometimes you'll see flush draws. Sometimes you'll see 77/88/99 or AT being raised for protection here. JJ is definitely in his range as well and I'm sure you are a decent favourite.

      Looks like a really easy all-in here.

      Thanks.

      yeah, pretty much. playing 1 table and some completely random tournaments

      he had TT obv :f_biggrin:
      i really need a break or good reassurance, seems like every time i 3bet the fish and they always connect and i get stacked. it's tough :f_confused:

      i know everyone's been there, so any alternatives to taking a break? feel like the best i can get is to B- game already, you can't play well if you are paranoid.

      instead of playing, do more reading and database review I suppose.
      Or get coaching - it really helps one to improve rapidly.

      I think shoving and playing on stack is really overplaying and sick. Call flop, check out turn and his next sizing. Cheap showdown or fold is typically standart decision on later streets.
