No a super clear picture here - why are you resting the poolish for two hours it should have already had a nice long 12 hours rest. If they're coming out flat you may like to observe of they are rising then deflating in the oven which would indicate overproof. Of they are not puffing at all you maybe haven't developed the dough. Then again maybe lamination is the problem - sounds like you already have a handle on this without poolish - what else is different ?
