      I think everything was weird here.

      I think first of all i should 3-bet preflop. As played also flop is very weird by Hero.

      But what happend on that turn. The BBs move was like a bluff but i decided to fold.

      A lot of weird moves here. Please give me the best line for whole hand.

      BB is fish

      Thanks in advance.

      Preflop: What about MP3? Do you have any stats on him, otherwise if we are playing against unknown then I am just folding my hand. I might consider 3betting when the guy would be on later positions or I know that he is capable of laying down his hand being OOP. More often I am just giving up my hand in such situations.

      As played
      Flop: Sure you can CBet on such board but more often against unknown it will hard to make him fold. I might even consider Check/Fold here, of course we do have the gutshot but it ain't give a reason to continue with the hand. Our gutshot still might be dominated, so I would just give up in multiway pot here, Check/Fold.
      Turn: Definitely Check/Fold.

      Being OOP don't try to limp with such marginal hands, you are just making your life a lot harder. Such hands are hard to play.

      Best regards,
