      Is the iso-raise ok ? I just can´t help myself so many times when I see fish limping from UTG, I just have to isolate him ...

      Ok I flop two pair, there is FD, I bet, turn ??? I raise cause there are still many draws and in my opinion I have to protect my hand.

      On the river ? its not very comfortable to call for me but I am commited.

      How should I play this hand ?

      I think the thing to remember about this pre-flop is yes you are the aggressor but you will be OOP on all post flop play.

      As played the re-raise by villain on the turn is very strong. KJ K10 are limp call range a lot. Your 3bet why save 0.25 just put it AI.

      my 0.02 worth

      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Just fold it here. :) Not worth on those limits.

      As played
      Postflop: I don't like the Bet/Call at all on turn, I'd just give it up right on turn, he may easily have a lot better pairs. You are oveplaying your 2weak-pairs.

      Best regards.

      Thank you both guys, next time I would rather not isolate oop but rather from middle to late positions.

      I am not really big fan of isolating at all with such hands on those limits. Ain't worth and I don't think you can play them profitable unless you know the opponent really good.
