      There is a bit of history with this reg, I haven't see him raise too much on flop but he plays vs me often post flop.

      PF = ok

      Flop= I lead out, and I`m calling the short stack(fish)`s shove
      ... when Villain raise`s here, all I`m thinking is that he is not representing anything but a preflop monster QQ-AA or A5, maybe 67s so I call thinking he`s trying some shananigans.

      Turn = I lead out on flop , and I think I`m mostly good here on turn, with the bet I`m putting his hand to the test, if he re`raise with some picture cards I`m expecting him to give up at this point.

      River = check/fold it's the only remaining way to go. I`m quite sure I`m behind after he called the turn bet.

      What do you think?

      Should I simply bet/fold flop without going into such a messy spot?

      Preflop: Guess calling is standard - We don't mind having BB push anyway.

      Flop: If the BB was a huge fish with a deep stack then I'll much prefer leading for value. Since he's short I think checking is better.

      Your bet size is also way too large and vs the Flop raise it's uncertain whether UTG is raising too much air here. I guess calling once vs he raise and deciding on Turn can't be too bad.

      Turn: Your hand is a bluff catcher on the Turn still, so I don't think you should ever be leading.

      Upon looking at these two hands, I think you have 2 leaks you need to fix.
      1. Betting and raising when you are not supposed to - Review reasons for betting and raising vs calling and checking
      2. Try not to overplay weak made hands - Kind of linked to the first point.
