      UTG: $1.25 - VPIP: 82, PFR: 9, 3B: 0, AF: 0,6, Hands: 22
      MP: $1.90 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 2,8, Hands: 54
      CO: $2.87 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 7, 3B: 0, AF: 5,0, Hands: 28
      BTN: $2.96 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 1,3, Hands: 20
      SB: $1.80 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 18, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 28
      Hero (BB): $2.01 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 2,3, Hands: 3093

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BB with A :club: 8 :spade:
      UTG calls $0.02, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, UTG calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.17) 9 :club: K :diamond: 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.20, Hero folds

      He does NOT fold. A8 crushes his range, so it's a value bet. Or oop it doesnt count as such because of the poor playability?

      then you should value bet this flop. :f_biggrin:

      i'd rather try to hit some pair and go for potsize bets though.

      Hello Imimba1,

      You are talking about crushing his range and stuff but now again you ain't even CBetting. I don't get it, then you should also be CBetting such a board.

      Also when you are isolating being OOP + 1 limper we ain't raising smaller cause of our weaker hand. :) Keep the raise sizes the same.

      If you have trouble playing in those spots then why do you isolate in first place? You are getting a free flop to see and you can always decide either to invest money there or not.

      Best Regards.
