      he is a fish and has not really a clue. I think the pre raise is probably bad. Maybe a complete bet would be better. I gave myself a postflop edge and wanted to test how he reacts to steals this early. Flop ist std cbet. On the turn I pick a FD and decided to 2nd barrel. On the river I thought about bluff betting because I could get him to fold better hand but decided to give up because of his 2 calls.

      I prefer to play J8s in position against a fish and folding is most likely better, but it’s not a big mistake to steal here. The flop Cbet seems standard. Especially if he’s playing fit and fold. The turn I would check to try to hit the flush. I doubt he will fold often on a blank turn card.
