      BB was 29/5/0 over 43.

      It's my standard OR. The bottom of my range though.


      Value betting. When he ships I think I am still good often enough vs trips/overpairs.
      There's only 7 combos of FH with PPs and more than 7 of 3x so I get enough equity to call.
      It is also more likely that a recreational player will overplay his 3x/OP and slowplay his FH.

      Preflop: 54s is way too loose to open from the Hijack, especially in a NL5 FR game. I presume this game is super loose with a ton of recreational players so you should tighten up from earlier positions and MP as well.

      Flop: What do you know about BB? that he's a fish right? 29/5. So you should just be potting the Flop and potting every street when you have the nuts.

      Turn: Your hand is way too strong to fold here. Besides having 7 combos of full houses, Sometimes you split the pot with him, and I think he can have some combos of trips as well (A3, 43s, 53s).

      It's kind of a scary line but I just think the straight is way too strong to fold here.
