      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has J:diamond: A:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.90, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.85, 3 players) J:club: 2:heart: Q:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($2.85, 3 players) 4:heart:
      UTG bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40, fold

      River: ($5.65, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      UTG bets $4.10, Hero ??

      So this guy is a 34/16 who opens 23% on EP and has 33% fold to 3bet. I thought this could be a good spot to 3bet him but I'm not sure if it is the best move since there are a lot players left to act.

      As played I feel kinda lost on the flop because the CO is a regular fit fold player 14/10 who has 43% fold to 3bet and 71% fold to cbet on 3bet pots. His range can be low PP and at the same time AK AQ AJ maybe KQs. Since he is the fit fold player type I guess checking here is fine to see if he bets or checks back although I don't like giving both players a free turn card.

      Calling turn is acceptable I guess, and OTR is this an easy fold? His total agf is 1.89 but he tends to be more aggressive on the river.

      Preflop: Hmm If you were in BU this would definitely be a 3-bet. Here it isn't so great but still ok, I think it's good to 3-bet and isolate the bad player.

      Flop: Checking is definitely good - Betting only isolates you vs strong draws and QX imo.

      Turn: The fish leads and I would call once.

      River: Hm I think folding now is fine, though it's certainly close. Maybe the fish's betting range on the Turn is stronger than usual, given the 3-way action.
