      just posting to get some confidence, felt pretty satisfied :D

      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 SB with J:diamond: , T:heart:
      MP3 calls $0,02, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,01, BB checks.
      worth an isoraise? don't like to overdo it OOP

      Flop: ($0,06) K:spade: , Q:club: , 9:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0,06, BB folds, MP3 raises to $0,12, Hero raises to $0,42, MP3 calls $0,30.
      how to go about getting his money in?
      being a freeplay pot, i just pot it and hope he has a hand
      minraise looks super strong so i thought that we would just get it in there, but no...

      Turn: ($0,90) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,61, MP3 calls $0,61.

      River: ($2,12) 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero raises $1,71 (All-In), MP3 calls $1,71.

      Final Pot: $5,54

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Qh 9h)
      Hero shows a straight, ace high (Jd Th)

      Hero wins with a straight, ace high (Jd Th)

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Preflop: Guess you can even isolate if you feel yourself strong enough playing postflop. But definitely completing is totally fine.
      Postflop: Nothing much to add. :) I do even like your bet sizes. And what do you mean by "how to go about getting his money in?"?

      Best regards.
