      Known players:

      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, A.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.75) 9, 7, 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.10, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.95) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      River: ($0.95) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, BB calls $0.35.

      Final Pot: $1.65.

      MP1 is 14/10 over 2k hands BB is 51/1 over 500 hands, both players fold to cbet less than 50%. Dont think I can class preflop as Isolation as I'm OOP and can expect a call from the BB 50% of the time, for that reason im questioning the preflop raise. As played flop misses, cant really cbet here so I basicly give up, fish bets, MP1 folds giving me good odds on a call as I believe my OC outs are good against such a wide range. Turn improves me to TPGK, should I then be leading small against him for pot controll? I check not wanting to see any big bets as he could have quite easily have improved to 2 pair as we know fish love to call suited A's. River I lead small to get value from any worse pair he may have bet the flop with and keep losses to a minimum incase he did hit 2 pair.
