      No info on villians this is the 3rd hand at the table.
      NL2 at Pokerstars.

      Is a raise unreasonable here against the limpy lookers we often see at this level?

      Hello cyclist52,

      Definitely! I don't even mind to isolate in those spots where KQs is just way ahead of their limping range. Well done!

      Best regards.

      I think you are saying a raise is reasonable, but perhaps I asked the question poorly when I asked if a raise was unreasonable.

      At first glance your reply says a raise is definitely unreasonable, but your explanation suggests that my hope to isolate the fish was a good thing.

      I am still new so some of the things that are obvious to you are less obvious to me.

      Well, that's why I am here to make things clear. :) Don't hesitate to post any questions/hands you have. Nothing is too simple in poker, even clear things sometimes are unclear if you take them from different view. :>
