  • 25nl Zoom - Bottom pair in 3b pot

    Stats VPIP: 50, PFR: 22, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 20 Villain is a fish so i iso-d pre with 69s IP. I made a standard cbet to get value from draws and whatever other junk he might have. This the turn is a standard check, and then he bets when the K pairs the board. Card removal wise (and sizing) it's doubtful he has a K here (though we don't block any Kx combos ), so I think given the odds we are getting and all the missed draws in his range I should be sigh/calling. Thoughts?

    Hi birdayy,

    I don't like this tbh... villain being a fish isn't a good excuse to iso with anything. This guy seems like very loose fish, so I prefer to iso him with a wide array of big card hands, that make a lot of top pair/2nd pair holdings which are great for value against this type of guy. If he's a tight-passive fish or fit or folder, then iso'ing 69s IP is nice because we're attacking the fact they fold too much, and have deceptive value to the hand when they don't, plus are dominated less with top pair hands. Like vs. this guy I would iso Q9, and he's going to limp/call all kinds of dominated junk, where a tight-passive fish will be limp/calling hands that dominate Q9 quite often instead of visa-versa.

    So as played, I would just fold tbh. It's pretty close, all flopped draws did bust, but I don't think we can rule out a K at all here (not making sizing judgements on this guy), He can certainly show up with K8o for example. The thing that swings it to a fold for me is that he is probably also betting a Q or 7 for reasons that don't make sense outside of his own head, making bluff catching all the busted draws less desirable.
