      $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 4 players -

      CO: $25.57
      BTN: $49.85
      Hero (SB): $25.12
      BB: $25.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.37) Hero is SB with 8 :club: 9 :club:
      CO calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.13, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.75) 9 :diamond: 8 :heart: 5 :club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BB folds, CO raises to $1.87, Hero ???

      CO unknown fish
      28 hands 59/11, AFq 27, WtSD 35

      Preflop i dont want to isolate him oop with a speculative hand, until i know his postflop tendencies better (but probably a CS).
      On the flop this raise is quite ugly, what is the best way to handle this? He is unknown, so it can be a monster (76/99/88/55), but it can be some slowplayed overpair as well, or just something he tries to bluff with. Is it better to reraise / stack off here, or treat it as a wa/wb situation, and just call, and ch/call down?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: You could even isolate here but of course just completing is definitely fine as well.

      As played
      Postflop: Most likely after we even do a pot size Bet and he still raises it's a marginal spots. I wouldn't really be 3betting cause there ain't worse 2pairs and neither I doubt that he would be overplaying just TP. Therefore at the best we could consider Bet/Calling and reevaluating it on the turn while he could have something like pair+SD.

      Best Regards.
