      Don't like the isolate pre - especially against an UTG limp.

      Considering he's not stupidly loose (like 40/10 or something). I think his range is mostly pp's which most likely aren't folding. So don't think we have enough fold equity on flop. Plus if called we only have a back door straight so not much equity ourselves.

      I would have raised pf 0.15$- this has worked out to me better than making it 4bb or more.
      First of all you have marginal hand, so unless you´re willing to put in a lot of money postflop with bluffs you don´t win that pot too often and often have to c-bet once and then give up (if you raise smaller, you can also c-bet smaller)
      Second if you have good hands, then you don´t really want him to c/f pre-flop, so making smaller isolation raises pre-flop would also gain you more money playing postflop
      Third: if someone decides to play back and 3-bet from the blinds, then you don´t loose so much money raising speculative hands on the BU.

      postflop: it is standard c-bet spot- he does not only limp/call with pp-s and without no showdown you should try take pot down.. On that dry board I would not bet more than half bet pot

      best regards,
