      I think we raise here both for isolation and the chance to pick up the dead money in the pot for free.

      There are a lot of station-type players involved (38-3 0.5 AF, 17-6 0.3 AF) and isolating one of them would be fantastic.

      Hello staktas,

      Yeah, seems a great spot to isolate. Also I would be even happy to go broke against CO stack or even SB.

      But as played I guess it's pretty hard to fold while he may even have worse sets or even 2pairs. :D

      Best regards.

      isn't squeeze is when one player open raises, and other calls?

      Yeah, it is. Don't know why I did even write squeeze. :D Guess a bit messed up with the all hands. :>

      I'm very bad at isolation, so I think this is a good spot for me to ask. Let's take this hand as example. All stats remain the same except that we have more than 300 hands versus each Villain (to make the stats valid)

      1. There are 3 limpers behind us, how much we raise? 4xbb + 1bb per limper = 7bb is enough? (Note: that's looks to big for me. I usually do 5bb)

      2. What kind of hand will we raise? (I guess its 88+, A9+, KJ+, QJ+)

      3. If we got called by 2 Villains, what is our general strategy postflop?

      With the position should be 7xBB totally enough. If we would be OOP then I might even add a BB. Myself on those limits I do never change the bet sizes to smaller ones with strong hands or either even with a bit weaker hands. Pretty much keep the standard size. No need to adjust since we want value with value hands.

      2. What kind of hand will we raise? (I guess its 88+, A9+, KJ+, QJ+)

      Something similar. Some smaller connectors I'd rather limp behind which can't hit some bigger pairs. A9o is also a bit off I would say, I'd start ATo.

      3. If we got called by 2 Villains, what is our general strategy postflop?

      By 2 villains then most likely if we hit we continue if we don't then most likely giving it up. Some Kxx boards I might even consider CBetting. But obviously depends as well against what kind of villains. If they are showdown bound then I'd rather just Check it behind. If they are passive they ain't gonna bet into multiway pot anyways without a hand. Also we ain't gonna make to fold any kind of weaker pair/PP.
