      Villain was an unknown, but since he limp/calls preflop I was tending to put him on a passively played overpair on the flop and maybe a straight/FD?

      Given that, can I consider value bet shoving the turn here? Or would straight up value betting just be better. I felt like I get it all if I shove :(

      Hello muel294,

      Why should we hate you? :D And I wouldn't change much in the play. Nice hand! Although overall isolating with such small SCs is very close. Would definitely keep an eye on them.

      Best regards.

      lol I'm only joking, I run like god sometimes :P

      Yeah its not something I'm doing 100% of the time I find 45s on the BU sometimes I'll limp behind if I'm getting better odds, but I feel like I can take it down on the flop unimproved a fair amount of the time, provided I choose who I isolate correctly.

      Obviously if my target rarely folds to flop c-bets then I'm not going to ISO
