      Without knowing nothing bout my opponents I am not sure about this move ... on the other hand I also have a hand with a blocker in case of BU calls.

      SB ($3.15)

      MP1 ($1.72)
      MP2 ($7.07)
      CO ($4.27)
      BTN ($6.54)

      Dealt to Hero 5:heart: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, Hero raises to $0.70, fold, fold

      Hello acceleration123,

      While I know it's NL5 and we even don't know the opponent I'd basically rather prefer to say fold the hand than isolate. Of course it's doable but we will never be sure that we even have fold equity there. Those players on that limit are just too loose to make such plays very profitable in long run.

      Best regards.

      I agree. What range would you squeeze here ? Basically almost everything I am also defending blind with ? Say KQ+,AT+,88+ ?

      Maybe a bit looser and add some suited gappers.

      J9s, QTs, 79s ? Could be ? OK and KJ, KT even, QJ (esp suited) ? Some low suited aces ?

      Yep, very likely. Better to have some blockers in the hand. And sometimes it's even better to just Call and play postflop, which is the case even on those limits.
