      BTN: $6.55 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 20, 3B: 5, AF: 4,0, Hands: 98
      SB: $12.27 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 4,5, Hands: 158

      MP: $5.09 - VPIP: 34, PFR: 7, 3B: 3, AF: 0,5, Hands: 92

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with 5 :spade: 7 :spade:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, BB calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.15) 8 :diamond: 2 :spade: 3 :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.94, BB calls $0.64

      Turn: ($3.03) 4 :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.03) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.00, Hero folds

      OK, so this is an old hand.

      Definitely don't like the isoraise preflop, but as played:

      1) Raise a bit bigger on flop?
      2) Better just bet the turn as well, right? With our equity + the chance of playing for a bigger pot when I hit.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Wouldn't say it's impossible to isolate such hands but they are difficult to play. But otherwise as played seems to be fine, I don't mind taking back the initiative vs his weak donk and mainly do it also for free card for the river.

      Best Regards.

      I am not too excited about the preflop isoraise here because of the BB's looseness + the BU even is not fullstacked (although judging from the stats he is not all that loose). But I can also very well imagine someone else seeing this as a very standard isoraise (in some videos, of course).

      Thus I have a question about this raise: given the loose players behind is it rather a fold or a raise for me? And would it still be a good isoraise for a better player than me?

      If a lot of them then rather not cause you will have trouble to get rid of them postflop. Only value comes from when we hitting our hand, though when you even hit for example your flush you can't be sure how good you are with it, you can't really easily play for 100bb even vs a fish.
