      Hey pleno,

      Some questions in this hand

      1) Is it OK to isoraise? I thought this hand was just good enough to play +ev with position.

      2)Should we raise flop or just call? Looking back at the hand I think it's better to call because we are getting direct odds and this hits his limp/calling range really good.

      3) I get good odds on the turn indeed but not supergood. I also have some reversed implieds vs TJ so I choose to get rid of my hand.

      Hey man,

      1) Absolutely, I would also iso raise q8 and fold q7, similarily for j8 and j7. We should be able to show a profit by cbetting vs a week range. And we want to play as many pots as possible vs a fish


      I'd go for something like; 55+,A2s+,K5s+,Q5s+,J7s+,T7s+,96s+,85s+,75s+,65s,54s,A7o+,A5o-A2o,K9o+,Q8o+,J8o+,T8o+,98o,87o

      2) I would treat his bet as a check and go for a raise, we have good equity here vs whatever he has and we can check back turn and see a free river by capturing the initiative here, also by having the initiative we have the option to drop some bombs and pile on the aggression if we choose too.

      3) I'd just fold turn, we don't have super good odds and we aren't deep enough to have great implieds too, whilst still some reverse implieds like you said.

      Nice.

      Ha, thanks for the compliment.

      Yeah private coaching a little bit expensive for a smaller stakes player, but feel free to keep posting hands and learning.
