      Why would you try to steal from a fish(i guess lag) with J9s if you know he won`t fold often enough to make this move profitable. Pick a better hand/time to take his money.

      Fold as he reraises you because u hit the board to few times to be playing profitably against a lag.

      As played raise to 1,5€ on flop so u can go broke directly on turn.

      Hi,


      I'm fine with the preflop raise/call, J9s is a fine hand to play in position against a fish provided you have some clue of how he's playing overall. You don't have to if you don't want to tho.

      Postflop is pretty straight forward, he's a fish he could have many Ax hands and he's not folding them. Like Gregor86 said, just raise bigger so that you can shove the turn.

      You can't really be afraid of AA/Jx with just a description of "extreme fish" for villain. If by "extreme fish" you meant he is 70/0/0 over 150 hands than yeah maybe he has AA the vast majority of the time for making a small 3-bet to begin with.


      Hope it helps.

      Hi,


      Right, my bad.

      Then I'm only calling the small 3-bet if villain is usually on the tight side, mostly for the chance of cracking whatever he deems worthy of a small 3 bet. If he's doing that all the time with a wide range, it's probably not a good idea to continue out of position, I might even just limp to make sure I don't get 3-bet off that hand if he's doing that often in blind battles.


      Hope it helps.
