      - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG+1: $10.25
      MP: $9.99
      MP+1: $19.09
      Hero (CO): $12.05
      BTN: $10.00
      SB: $10.00
      BB: $6.45
      UTG: $10.01

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:spade: 9:heart:

      fold, fold, MP calls $0.10, fold, Hero raises to $0.50, fold, fold, BB calls $0.40, MP calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.55, 3 players) 9:club: 2:club: 4:heart:
      BB checks, MP checks, Hero bets $1.24, fold, MP calls $1.24

      Turn: ($4.03, 2 players) 7:club:
      MP checks, Hero bets $2.41, MP raises to $4.95, fold

      I think that A9o is good enough to raise from CO and isolate limper...
      On the flop I fired for 80% of the pot because flush draw... and in my opinion it was reasonable play...
      what about the turn?

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: Yeah, the isolation raise is definitely considerable if you think you can make him easily fold either preflop or postflop and don't have that loose opponents behind you. Likely A9 is ahead of their range. But more often I do like to isolate with A9s.
      Postflop: While you made a huge bet on flop and then a lot smaller bet on turn you could easily even induce him to bluff you. Although there is not much to do than bet the turn a bit bigger and then likely Bet/Fold it. You just showing that you are scared of the flush card. We can't really Check behind either and then make a hero Call on river, rather bet for free showdown and for protection of course.

      Best regards.

      As I mentioned CBet was 80% of the pot... the turn bet was 60% of the pot... amount of CBetF and CBetT should be smiler?

      Not similar, although could make a bit bigger, 60% is way too small. Almost the same as 1/2. And you can easily induce opponents to raise you. For example if I would be the opponent then I would definitely try to represent the flush there vs your bet and we will very often see a fold, unless you have the flush yourself.
