      Personally, I prefer to isolate w KQ pre-flop when a 38/10 and 22/0 have limped in.

      Against this guy, I'm probably just shoving the turn for value expecting to get called by worse flush draws, worse Qs, and some smaller pairs.

      As played, the river is close against such a passive player - you need to be right about 40% of the time to call. I'm probably calling given the draws missed.

      Hello Filipstan,

      Preflop: With such a hand we don't really want to play in multiway pot. Just isolate and hope to get less people into the pot.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, I am as well rather folding on river, we are more often behind there.

      Best regards.
