      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:heart: Q:spade:

      Hero bets $1.05, BTN raises to $2.10

      So this guy is a 33/24 over a decent sample with a 3.20 agf.
      att to steal 46%
      fold to 3bet 47%
      fold to cbet in 3bet pots 58%
      raise cbet on 3bet pots 27%
      agf otf 4.25

      Pre flop I guess I played it fine, on the flop after his mini raise I find myself in a tough situation because I think calling here is spewy since I will always fold on the turn if unimproved and at the same time I believe he is bluffing a lot here. So what line whould you take on the flop?

      What read makes you think he's a fish? Looks like any normal LAG player to me.

      How so?

      Anyway, I'd fold. He might not have a strong hand, but he may just have a bluffcatcher. He's put you on AK here, and although you can represent something like AA/KK, I don't think you'll ever turn up with the best hand here.

      Hello,

      I would 3bet more against an opponent who doesn't seem to like folding.

      Not really the best board to cbet here.
      We don't have any backdoors and this board is hitting his calling range decent.

      Once he raises I prefer folding without any specific information.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I actually prefer bet/folding here. If you don't you pretty much turn your cards over and reveal a strong Ax hand that's missed, whereas betting can represent a JJ+ That's betting for value against worse pairs or possible (in this case, as Villain is lag) draws.
