      Why do you isolate, if you're not even trying to take the pot? Raise flop, and then prepare to give-up or call that small bets to the SD w A-high.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Raising the flop wouldn't achieve much while he hardly hits there such a board. I'd most likely just leave the pot alone right on the flop cause you don't have that much equity overall and not many outs even. Just an ace which ain't even clear out.

      Best Regards.

      With a 53% vpip, I thought an A is a clear out.
      Why do you think that it isn't clear? Most of the times it should be, and we are getting very good odds here. E.g. On the turn we don't even need implied odds if the A is an out.

      He could have something like A5+ there. Also KT is possible, he could even have a set, which he is slowplaying there.

      You got only 3 outs for your hand, and it might not be the best, so you can't go for it.

      How can it be ever clear just cause he is having such a VPIP? :) This rather tells us that he is having a wide range and he could have anything there and also which means the Ace could improve his range.
