      Hi henne007,

      Flop is fine IMO. I don't like 3-betting there, villain just told you he liked his hand, so you probably don't have a lot of FE there. Also, he's midstacked, that makes it even harder for him to let his hand go even if it's a just a pair.

      Turn is player dependent, against an agressive I'd check/call, against a passive I'm betting out directly.
      Against an unknown, I'd bet out directly. Also, as I mentioned, if he has anything, he probably won't let go off his hand.

      On the river I'd put him all-in. His stack is less than pot size, and I really don't think he's letting his hand go, whatever he's holding. And that 9 might have just given him trips, and if I don't think he'll fold a pair, he certainly won't fold trips.
      Besides this, if he's willing to call $3, he will call $6.35.
      IMO, most of these fish players don't think about Big Blinds, they think about the money, so it's not "ooh, a pot size bet" or "hmm, 25 Big Blinds"... it's more like, "ah, just $6.35... let's see what you have... I call". :P
