      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem
      5 Players

      UTG ($7.67)
      CO ($4.13)
      Hero ($4.34)
      SB ($3.96)
      BB ($4.22)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) Hero is BTN 7:heart: A:heart:
      UTG calls $0.04, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.16, 1 fold, BB calls $0.12, UTG folds

      Flop: 6:diamond: 2:heart: 7:spade: ($0.38, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.24, BB raises to $0.72

      12/9, calls open ~8% from BB, over large sample,
      check/raise 6%

      Maybe I had to isolate a little bigger: 4,5 to 5bb.
      I put BB on 99-22,AQs-A9s,KJs+,AQo-AJo,KQo

      Standard, until he x/r me.
      Now, I think he`s got a set or 88,99. I doubt, that he will x/r bluff me with 2 overcards. If I call here, i will have to face a turn bet very often.

      So, this is a fold.

      Your pre-flop isolation raise size is okey, u can make it bigger, but 4x is certainly ok. Flop bet fold, cause i dont expect him to bluff here often to make call worth. Then u need to call usually turn as well and just fold a lot of rivers.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Preflop: On those limits I guess I am still raising to $0,20, even though the raise size ain't a mistake if you make it usually smaller.
      Postflop: Not much you can do there against that kind of opponent. His Check/Raise ain't that big either that he is capable of bluffing so often here to make the Call profitable.

      Best regards.
