      Tough. Probably should have been a check/fold on the turn. But then again – why openraise if I cBet a paired flop just to play check/fold on most turns.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Not really, if you are isolating such hands then you can never Check/Fold the turn vs his stack. :)

      Best Regards.

      1) Once we push on the turn are we really getting any value from weaker hands or are we just protecting ourselves from overcards?

      2) Do you agree with the preflop isolation with this hand?
      I would then lean towards just simply completing being OOP because I do not feel comfortable in such spots.

      Why not? We are against not even a full stack. He doesn't have much left. Most likely he wouldn't be betting himself anyways if we check into him. Why do you raise in first place? This boards is one of the best you could face (of course we could find strong ones but overall I am talking basic boards).

      I would most likely just complete while CO has really small stack. If you raise then it means you are planning to play for the stacks.
