      I think it´s ok to isolate with hand such as strong as AQs even oop. Though maybe could make it even bigger a bit preflop and on the flop as well. About the cbet in general I think this is ok flop to cbet.

      Known players:       

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , Q:club:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0,05, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0,25, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0,20.

      Flop: ($0,55) T:diamond: , 8:club: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,35, UTG2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,55

      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Basically depending on the opponent but very likely those players limp more often with small PPs, therefore I do like as well to do the raise bigger being OOP, ~$0,30.
      Postflop: Seems to be totally fine, we even have few backdoors and the size is fine as well.

      Best regards.
