      Is it ok to iso-raise hand like this from BU, or maybe from CO ? I isolate a lot from late position, I wouldn´t do that with hand like this from MP or so, but from BU is it doable or is it still way too loose ?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $11.35
      BB:
      $6.03
      MP2:
      $11.48
      MP3:
      $4.08
      CO:
      $16.27
      BU (Hero):
      $10.03


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 4, K.
      MP2 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB calls $0.45, 2 folds, MP2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.2) 7, 3, T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.60, SB raises to $1.70, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.8.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: If you are doing that against some station then I wouldn't really advice to do that. On those limits it's pretty hard to play with such hand unless you know your opponent and have a plan how you gonna take down the pot.

      As played
      Postflop: I don't like the 1/2 pot bet, rather do it like $0,80 or something similar. 1/2 just looks to weak and sometimes might even induce a bluff-raise.

      Best regards.
