      Hello Sikac,

      Nah, I don't like that much the iso-raise here vs so many opponents. You are going to play the hand OOP and especially very often being even dominated and put yourself into marginal spots which even happens.

      How many worse hands do you expect you paying on the turn? At the same time you kind of commit yourself. :( That's why you should rather avoid isolating vs so many opponents with marginal hand being OOP.

      We are of course betting the flop to protect from overcards and draws.

      Best Regards.

      On the turn against such an opponent I bet because he could have a GS,OESD, 9x,PP again me being tempted by stats.
      Now, an overall questions:
      a) If there were just 2 limpers can I isolate?
      b) I can go for isolation if there are max. 2 limpers with a mediocre hand?
      c) This same spot I have 88,77, ATo, ATs, KTo, KTs, QJo,QJs,KJo,KJs then should I isolate?
      d)Also did I read I think I some of BGawli post s that you don t suggest to isolate with A small cards OOP. Does this refer to suited and unsuited? So IP we can?

      IP why not? Would be fine, but being OOP and against stations I am not a huge fan. Your hand isn't even that strong and you ain't gonna earn huge profit from such a play.

      b) I can go for isolation if there are max. 2 limpers with a mediocre hand?

      Depends what do you see a mediocre hand to be?

      c) This same spot I have 88,77, ATo, ATs, KTo, KTs, QJo,QJs,KJo,KJs then should I isolate?

      With a lot of opponents you are very deep, you are going to play OOP, your hand could easily be overplayed. Do you really think it's a good idea? Of course it's possible but now again you should be away of postflop problems.

      d)Also did I read I think I some of BGawli post s that you don t suggest to isolate with A small cards OOP. Does this refer to suited and unsuited? So IP we can?

      IP I tend to isolate more since we have the power of position. :) OOP often times wouldn't do that unless I am aware what kind of opponents are against us.
