      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, A.
      MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.05, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.20, CO folds.

      Flop: ($0.6) 2, 4, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.30, Hero raises to $13.76, MP2 calls $1.08.

      River: ($15.74) J (2 players)

      As villain is 63/31 over roughly 40 hands I thought I'm definitely ahead if he missed the flop.

      Hello Ickki,

      Preflop: They don't have a huge stack that you need to isolate, rather just limp in.

      As played
      Postflop: Well yeah, assuming that you isolating preflop for value then most likely you have to assume to be ahead her as well. But I don't really like your play while we could play it a lot more passively and just play safe than pick such a variance. While we don't even know if the guy is betting without having a hand. ;)

      Best Regards.
