      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with 9 :heart: Q :heart:
      UTG calls $0.05, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.67) 5 :diamond: 9 :spade: 2 :heart: (3 players)
      UTG bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.70, BTN folds, UTG raises to $2.46, Hero calls $1.76

      Turn: ($5.59) K :heart: (2 players)

      River: ($5.59) 5 :spade: (2 players)

      My questions:
      - Can I isolate there against such a loose player?
      - Is my flop raise fine or should I just call(donk bet 75%(4))
      - Can I call his shove?
      ( I need 31,48% equity to make this a break even call so given this range:

      Board: 5:diamond: 9:spade: 2:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG+2  41.38%  37.34%   4.04% { TT-55, 22, A9s, A5s, K9s, K5s, Q9s, J9s, T9s, 97s+, 85s, A9o, A5o, K9o, Q9o, T9o }
      CO     58.62%  54.58%   4.04% { Qh9h }

      I think it is fine to call. Also do you think this range could be right?

      Hello Sikac,

      Nah, your play is fine here and I wouldn't change much. Against his stack I doubt that there is much to do. Of course his line looks really strong with the min-bet/shove but the question is if we really can get away here. He definitely has even worse 9x hands and sometimes even more horrible hands with his calling range. So I am also playing the same way.

      Pot controlling would be another option then we might even get away as well but should we do that?

      Best Regards.
