      Known players:

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8:spade: , 7:diamond:
      MP2 calls $0,25, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,25, SB raises to $1,50, BB folds, MP2 calls $1,25, Hero calls $1,25.

      Normally i isolate with this hand, but SB 3B with ~16% so far.
      So i just called.
      I think i should have folded the hand in the first place since it is really not strong.
      But what should i do with a 98s in this spot? Isolate and throw away to 3B or just call and wait for a raise from SB?

      Such an player to my left is just annoying, the only reason i stayed is because there were a 48/8 and a 67/0 player on the table.

      Flop: ($4,75) K:heart: , K:club: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $3, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4,75

      Well if SB is 3-betting 16% then he should be either calling or folding 84% that should still make profitable isolation raise against loose player. You don´t have to raise that much, imo 3xbb raise is enough to get you hu against bad player and then you can make decisions postflop.
      Generally prefer folding against SB isolation. You have position but really can´t stand too much heat and 87 really doesn´t flop that well.

      Best regards,
