      BB: $1.58 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0,3, Hands: 12
      UTG: $1.61 - VPIP: 43, PFR: 29, 3B: 0, AF: 0,0, Hands: 14
      CO: $0.53 - VPIP: 88, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 1,6, Hands: 68
      Hero (BTN): $2.51 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 2,3, Hands: 3399
      SB: $0.78 - VPIP: 12, PFR: 12, 3B: 13, AF: 0,0, Hands: 25

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BTN with K :spade: 5 :club:
      1 fold, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, 1 fold, BB calls $0.06, CO calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.25) 9 :heart: 5 :heart: 2 :club: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero?

      Wanted to isolate the superloose co preflop. This flop is very bad for a CB, right?

      I think you are opening to loose here, and if you want to isolate, you have to make it bigger 4xbb+1bb pr. limper in this case you should pay 10 cents to isolate, would also give BB less odds to continue.
      But I would never play K5o from this position unless I have a very very tight player at BB.

      I agree, you need to raise it bigger preflop. I wouldn't mind a c-bet against the two passive players, the flop isn't too scary, I'd give up if this wasn't successful though.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Do you play any2 mate? :D Fold the hand instead of isolating. You have huge postflop problems with will rarely make you huge profit with such hands. Plus also keep your iso-raises the same as normal raises which would be 4bb + 1bb per limper.

      As played
      Postflop: CB of course as long you are isolating it for value.

      Best Regards.
