      BB: $10.92 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 14, 3B: 13, AF: 9,0, Hands: 83
      UTG: $2.80 - VPIP: 36, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1,5, Hands: 47

      Hero (SB): $10.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 65799

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with 9 :club: 9 :diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.90) J :spade: 5 :diamond: A :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($0.90) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      River: ($0.90) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Preflop I could have even just gone for a 5BB isoraise for value, right?

      What to do on the flop though? Tough to bluffcatch with 3rd pair here but don't see myself really getting called by that many worse hands if I cBet, maybe just some GS combos from time to time. Maybe how I played is even fine? Just try to check it down.

      Hello Avatars91,

      I like your play here and I wouldn't play much differently. Nice hand! There ain't many hands what are worse and pay you and nor you ain't making better ones to fold.

      Best Regards.

      How do I adapt to villain's stack size preflop regarding isolation-raise sizing?
      1) Could I even be raising to 5BBs with value hands, especially being OOP?
      2) Can I still raise some weaker hands here as well, such as JTo, provided I raise it smaller, e.g. to 3BBs? No balancing vs him required, probably.

      Yes and yes. :P Vs bad players we don't really balance our sizing cause for them it doesn't matter much.
