      Standard isolation.
      :diamond:O n the Flop:
      Usually at NL2 i saw that people like to slow play sets at least on the flop, so the pot bet by Villan doesn't scare me. I'm not sure why i only minraised there, but when he pushed all-in, i was quite sure he was on a flush draw, so i called.

      Hello mayapnd,

      Since it's NL2 and they might even go broke with a lot weaker T there or maybe even with some kind of draws, I'd also Call the shove against this kind of opponent. But you can't put him exactly on FD there. Although sometimes I even just Call there and reevaluate turn, since such a potsize pot could also represent a set very easily from a passive opponent for example.

      Best regards.
