      QTs isolation is too loose?

      So your trying to keep the BB out of the game? I'd normally just raise to 3-4xBB. Unless i've got some special reads on the BB. It's just 1 player you want to keep out of the pot.

      Second, the pot would have been around .90 and you can c-bet another
      +/- .50 (depending on villains fold2cbet). Else i'd play check fold and minimized my losses.

      I wouldn't raise on fold on preflop because his VPIP is too tight.
      and on flop I would CB a bit bigger because of drawing hand.

      Agree with the flop betsizing.

      Hey :)

      I think preflop is fine, 6bb is the max. sizing I would choose preflop but it is still for value.

      I strongly dislike your small betsizes on the Flop. You want him to fold and yet you bet supersmall, just bet bigger to get the job done so you know for sure you are beat. Now people can just call with a load of hands and bluff you out of the pot with worse hands

      Best regards,
      Gerv
