      so... I decided to raise isolated bet... it's questionable... but I like do it with this hand...
      On the flop bets me only pockets 99, 88 and 44... but I have to protect my hand from flush and straight draw so I fired solid value bet...
      On the turn I fired again solide value bet... I was ready to fold this hand if he rr me because straight was possible but still I had to protect my hand from FD...
      On the river I think I could have played check... for pot control... but my opponent didn't show strength so far... also he opened limp so he looked like fish... so I decided to fire again...

      Hello BGawli,

      We mostly have him beat anyways, even on river. If he really had some very strong hand then he would be more often inclined to raise himself either on flop or turn. Nice hand! He may as well even have some kind of FD with the Ax hand on river which will definitely pay us.

      Best regards.
