      Hi there!

      I wanted to evaluate this hand.

      As the guy reraised the fish - I thought that he is isolating rather than 3betting, so I decided to reraise. I think that this all in was probably very bad play. I honestly don´t know what I thought... In the end, I was right about the fish but i still think it is not too good play.

      What do you think Gerv? How to properly - REisolate this fish?

      Hello AyuraoA,

      UTG+2 only has 9 PFR which is not much, I do not know the hand samples as you should provide them. Now the real threat is MP3 who only plays 11/2 with 2 being the raise % so when he 3bets it is definitely a strong move

      That said JJ is not a very good hand anymore so I am more leaning towards a fold!

      Best regards,
