      Thoughts on this?

      Was it too aggressive? Badly iso'ing myself against better hands?

      Only few hands I had on villian he limp called everything.

      C-bet for fold equity and i have some equity anyway.

      Plan to c/f turn and river, except not for the .25c

      Thanks

      Just a note on this:

      I've realised i'm raising way too big here, and isolating myself against better hands i'll fold to a 4bet (like the last jj and AK hand)

      Although villian played the hand kinda stupid himself, I think I can still learn from this one.

      Especially when I think in general many of these villians I think I have better post flop skills than

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Preflop: I wouldn't say that you are raising way too big, although we can say that it might be close to raise against almost UTG. But definitely doable.
      Postflop: Not much to do I guess, I would as well Call the $0,25 not just in hope to win the hand but as well take a look at his hand and take a note. What did he have then? QQ? :D

      Best regards.

      Just wondering then, how come I can raise it here with jj against 2 opponents but should maybe only call against the 1?

      Is it because this is essentially a squeeze so i have a bit more fold equity against them, whereas vs unknown it's a much harder situation?

      And nope! I would rather he had that :D ... He had JK

      Yep, something similar. Squeeze will look a lot stronger in those spots and they might even sometime fold QQ or hands like AK/AQ against we really don't have to take a flip. And of course that's as well why I did mention I would sometimes consider Calling. And of course we are OOP as well. :(

      Hehe, scared. :D Definitely worth taking note that he plays his TP this way.

      I feel in general my game is coming on a lot.

      Thanks!
