Crystal clear raise flop to at least $350.

As played turn is close. I lean toward just calling now although I think we're still good 90% of the time. It's just gonna be so easy playing rivers vs this guy.

Really would have raised flop vs this guy. Calling is pretty bad with this hand / board.

Raise the flop to gii. There are so many cards we don't want to see on the turn. Make him pay for it. Maybe he'll think we are on a draw and call with much worse.

I can go either way on the turn. If you are sure he doesn't have a flush, maybe click it back or slightly more. I rarely do that, but against this guy I kind of like it. He might shove with a big heart, too. Sucks if he has KQ, but we can't really fold vs. him.

Re: Flop 2nd Nuts vs Fish - ~400BB deep

grunch: raise flop to $350ish. Hell, I might even shove all in and expect to get called by all sorts of random stuff.

When he overbets $100, he has announced that he likes his hand, A LOT. You want to immediately shovel money in here vs a fish that cannot fold hands such as sets, 2 pair, 78, AJ, KJ, hearts, etc. His range is wide and there are many turn cards which can freeze the action.

As played, I call turn and would consider a small raise on blank rivers if he bets small again, or a 30-40% pot bet if checked to, otherwise I'm calling blank rivers, and might not even fold if another heart comes vs this player type who is just clicking buttons.
