      villain is fish, playing 100/67/100 3bet through 3 hands

      as played, do we 3bet flop, or flat to keep villain's range wider and with possible spews? board is so dry so i flatted with the intention of getting in on all turns (not sure if that is optimal though)

      Hi.

      I don't think the board is dry. There are 2 broadway cards and 2 middle cards so there are a ton of straight draws. Coordination is more important than the presence of a possible flush draw, in terms of determining how dry/wet a board is.

      I think both options are fine. in position I would probably call, OOP I think shoving over is probably good.

      Thanks.

      thanks mbml.

      just to understand better, we shove oop because it is much tougher to control if the money goes in correct?

      and you are right in regards to the board not being dry, tons of broadways exist, which is why turn scared me a bit, and could possibly scare villain on turn if he has Ax hands.

      Basically it would be bad if let's say, you check the Turn and this guy checks back on a King turn. Then maybe the River brings another King/Queen/Jack and all those hands kill our hand or our action.

      If you had position you could always control the hand and bet when checked to so that's less of a problem.
