If you are playing fish who always raise pre then limp with your premium hand and give them a good 3 bet in return.
If you are playing fish who call and almost never raise and you have AA UTG what to do? It's a tricky spot if you do a 3x raise the fish will obviously call which could entice the whole table to play the hand as everyone will be priced in. So I guess in that spot start off with a bigger bet we don't want a family pot with AA we would rather everyone fold.
Great response. In addition to 3x raise to avoid fish, have there been instances where the 'family' knows the drill of 3x and you have had to modify your approach?
If so, were they just changes like 5x to shrug off too many 'family' members entering the pot after 2nd street?
I encountered a 3x raiser as a standard move and was able to evade his wrath. Fortunately he/her were 4 positions away and I had many players to follow to help me call the 3x raiser.
The cuts are deeper when dealing with such players.
