      How should I play this hand?

      I know I should raised more preflop, 4x or 5x BB. My intention was to isolated the weak BB who like to limping. I did raise 3x many times before to isolated him and work very well. This time it does not.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , 9:diamond:
      MP3 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.06, BU folds, SB calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04, MP3 calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.24) A:heart: , K:club: , J:spade: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP3 bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, SB folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.42) 4:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.42) T:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP3 bets $0.21, Hero calls $0.21, BB folds.

      Final Pot: $0.84

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows a straight, ace high (Qd 7d)
      Hero shows (Ad 9d)

      MP3 wins with a straight, ace high (Qd 7d)

      Hello patszerdonk,

      Preflop: Not really a good reason that it did work early. :D Just do it the same as you would do it with your strong hands. So 5x.

      As played
      Flop: Seems to be kinda close, although likely going for pot control is safer being in such a multiway pot.
      Turn: Guess I'd still bet it here, there are still hands which may pay us.
      River: Not much to do as you even didn't bet the turn, although pretty close, I don't think that we beat many hands. There are even a lot 2pairs possible which easily beat us therefore you can as well just lay down the hand.

      Best regards.
