      Pacific Poker - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $10.56
      Hero (SB): $12.19
      BB: $13.04
      UTG: $18.20
      UTG+1: $8.08
      MP: $3.26
      MP+1: $2.18
      LP: $8.93
      CO: $4.00

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10, CO posts DB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.25) Hero has 3:spade: 3:club:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.10, fold, fold, LP calls $0.10, CO checks, BTN calls $0.10, Hero raises to $1.00, fold, UTG+1 calls $0.90, fold, CO calls $0.90, fold

      Flop: ($3.30, 3 players) 8:club: 3:diamond: 5:diamond:
      Hero bets $2.70, fold, CO raises to $3.00, Hero calls $0.30

      Turn: ($9.30, 2 players) K:diamond:

      River: ($9.30, 2 players) T:diamond:

      Hero shows 3:spade: 3:club: (Three of a Kind, Threes) (Pre 18%, Flop 4%, Turn 2%)
      CO shows 8:diamond: 8:spade: (Flush, King High) (Pre 82%, Flop 96%, Turn 98%)
      CO wins $8.84

      I don't feel bad with this hand because I would have lost it for better or worse on the flop if I hadn't isolated preflop.
      I'm interested in if I can play with low PP in this way? I mean isolate limpers?

      I usually dont like to isolate in spots like this unless:

      1) the table has been particularly tight
      2) you will often find yourself HU
      3) opponents are folding to flop cbets frequently (more than 60%)

      If the above conditions are not met in multiway limped pots I think we will find ourselves OOP in a bloated pot, where opponents will rarely fold and may be able to outplay us postflop in certain cases.

      We are already getting great expressed odds and implied odds (since it is MWP) to just set mine and c/f unimproved without worrying.

      yea i dont like isolating OP here too!

      with only .10 (.05 from SB) you can mine for your set and just fold if you miss.

      Hello BGawli,

      Not really worth to isolate with just 33 here. Rather limp in as well and play for the set value.

      Best Regards.
