      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with T :club: Q :club:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.10, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, 3 folds

      Villain openlimps for the first time, but is likely doing it with a very weak range. For that reason this isoraise ought to be pretty standard, I suppose. Just wanted to be sure since there is an overlimper as well :)

      However, if we were up against very loose guys that even don't fold postflop, given the fact that we are OOP, we would be better off just completing, right? (We could isolate being IP though?).

      Hi,

      i think QTs is fine to raise. There are also good scare cards as A, K where players would give you respect and Q, T might easily give you best hand.

      With QTs I would likely raise myself, with QTo I would more likely complete. If I was ip I would isolate 100%

      best regards,

      If both of them are very loose, would you still isolate OOP?

      depends which mood I´m at and if I have been winning or not. Oop you can always choose check and play smaller pot fit or fold style. If you check then you also don´t need to c-bet on Axx, Kxx boards and can bet with your draws or if you hit your pair.

      best regards,
