      Final Board: 9 9 4 K Q
      Hero mucked K A and won $4.26 ($2.02 net)
      CO showed K J and lost (-$2.24 net)

      Villain is 72/30 over 52 hands, huge fish.

      3betting for value pre flop.

      On the flop against a player like this, do we cbet? I wasn't really sure what to do here, so decided to just bet here to try and take it down, because he can call with a ton of random things pre flop.

      Of course on the turn I get it in (leaving those few cents behind was a misclick).

      So what's best on the flop? And if we cbet, how big should our bet be?

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that a cbet here is fine and we can even consider it for value given the fact that villain can usually call lighter (fishy guy on a paired board). And the result has shown us that our assumption is correct.

      As far as bet size g oes 1/2 is plenty.
