      Prima, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      CO: $5.52 (138 bb)
      BTN: $4.13 (103.3 bb)
      SB: $12.45 (311.3 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4.22 (105.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.49 (62.3 bb)
      MP: $6.75 (168.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T J
      UTG calls $0.04, MP folds, CO calls $0.04, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, UTG calls $0.16, CO calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.62) 3 6 A (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.36, UTG calls $0.36, CO raises to $1.20, Hero folds, UTG calls $0.84

      Turn: ($3.38) T (2 players)
      UTG checks, CO bets $1.68, UTG calls $1.09 and is all-in

      River: ($5.56) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $5.56 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 3 6 A T J
      CO showed 6 6 and won $5.46 ($2.97 net)
      UTG showed 4 A and lost (-$2.49 net)

      UTG is a 42/19, 1.4 AF, 28% ftcb 35% wtsd 120 hands
      CO is a 30/11 2.4 AF, ftcb 51% with a 31% wtsd 243 hand
      neither of these players plan to fold after limping

      Do I still have a profitable isolation raise against 2 limper who are slightly showdown bound?
      Should i cbet on that flop?

      Hey :)

      Preflop: We have a decent hand and we are closing the action. Against 2 people who are not folding I would elect to overlimp and see a flop with this hand.

      Flop: We didn't hit the flop and we don't have any equity in the pot - just a backdoor straight draw, a J or a T might be good sometimes but we are out of position multiway so I would just check/fold this hand vs. 2 people.

      If theyre not folding pre than I'd rather just x behind than isolate and play a big pot oop

      as about x/f flop

      Hello riskcore,

      Preflop: Rather don't isolate here cause clearly you making more mistakes doing that vs loose range. Nor we can't really raise for value.

      As played
      Postflop: Check/Fold the flop, clearly proves that you having leaks in your game. And isolating ain't good idea.

      Best Regards.
