      Villain was very loose and had limp/called a number of weak hands OOP so I decided to ISO as frequently as possible for value.

      Flop: when he min DBs here I don't expect him to have a strong hand very often. I would expect him to do this with any pair, gutshots and FD's. My plan was to raise and fold to a 3b since I know he will call with worse but rarely 3b as a semi-bluff or pure bluff.

      Turn: At the time I decided to just call because I considered myself to be in a pot control situation. I thought that I am IP and my hand is marginal. I could already be way behind vs 2pr+ and wanted to keep the pot small and get to showdown. My plan was to call T and call a smallish bet on the river to try to get to showdown.

      In hindisght, I think this is clearly a spot to just b/f the turn ( I say b/f because I think I should treat his DB as a check) as my 9 :heart: draw will hardly ever be good. So, essentially I have a medium made hand which is as strong as it will ever get. Additionally I miss value against any weaker pairs, gutshots and FD's. He will mostly 3b me when I am beat and rarely bluff or semi bluff me here IMO. Also since I am IP, I can just bet the turn for value and take a free showdown on the river or fold to a normal sized river bet unless I am getting insane odds like in this example.

      River: As played I called the river for pot odds and note taking, don't see any reason to raise or fold here.
