      Hello! I tried to pick up a dead money after the MP posted blinds, but he called. Since the flop wasn't that dangerous, I tried to take the pot down with a CB, but he called again. On the turn, I hit a flushdraw and thought that A could be a good scare card for a 2nd barrel, but he called again.. I gave up the river..

      His stats: 55/9/50/3,5/9/24 (VPIP/PFR/FtoCB/Agg/WTSD/Hands)

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello Alleen86,

      Preflop: I am not really big fan of isolating a loose player with such a hand. This hand just doesn't have much playability postflop. We can't play for pair and as well we will have hard time making him fold a lot weaker hands postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Rather just Check behind on turn, such a station wont give up there anyway any pair.

      Best regards.
