      The UTG and the blind were very loose...here I raised to isolate the limper which i was sure i had better hand.

      Position: Stack
      AF W$SD WTS hands

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Tc, Ah (Comment)
      UTG+2 calls $1.00, 3 folds, Hero raises to $4.50, BU calls $4.50, 2 folds, UTG+2 calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($15.00) Js, 8c, 9d (3 players) (Comment)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $17.95 (All-In), BU calls $17.95, UTG+2 calls $17.95.

      Turn: ($68.85) 4d (2 players) (Comment)
      UTG+2 bets $38.50 (All-In), BU folds, UTG+2 gets uncalled bet back..

      River: ($68.85) 9s (Comment)

      Final Pot: $68.85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of nines (Tc Ah)
      UTG+2 shows two pairs, jacks and nines (7d Jd)

      UTG+2 wins with two pairs, jacks and nines (7d Jd)

      Did I play it right? I have open str draw and overcard. Since my left stack was around the pot i had decided to go all-in. Any suggestions?? Except that i shouldn't get involved in a first place.:) (Comment)

      As you said, you shouldn't get involved into this hand. And the fact that the limpers were loose... ...from what I heard you must play tighter against loose players, not looser. ;)

      Anyway, about your hand, you played nice. You were the preflop aggressor and you hit a draw on the flop which means you have to go broke.

      Hey bah22,

      isolation as a move is ok, however, not necessary to do on NL 100) (i was though)

      1) BU is a better position to isolate (your example shows why)
      from CO you should be tigther, but AT is fine

      2) wait for mid-late limpers, even loose players won't limp total trash from UTG.

      3) its more profitable to isolate with reduced stack 15-18
      22 might be a bit challenging, especially, when you get only 1 caller

      otherwise fine
