      Hi Mahee,

      Unless MP limp/folds a lot or plays fit/fold postflop our isolation is a bit loose.

      Why? Because his range is rather stronger than let's say someone that plays 40% or more of their hands.

      However, we do still have position and initiative.

      Flop/Turn bet sizes are fine.

      River: Villains range getting to the river is 66-88, 9x, TT, 5x and missed draws.

      I feel we can still valuebet because we can expect villain to raise at least some 5x combos. We can't bet too big because we don't want to put 66-88 and even 9x in for a hard decision.

      hey,

      5x i think is not in his range but certainly Jx is like AJ KJ QJs. He might hit his J or 9 and you could extract value from this.

      I think i would make a half pot bet river and call push. We cannot expect QQ+ hand because of preflop action and i am pretty sure he would play this kind of hands more aggressive preflop.

      So for me river is value bet.

      Alan I really don't think he'll push anything weaker.

      I think I bet large and fold to a raise.

      1) He limps, and people limp many low cards
      2) Sure slowplaying 5X here doesn't seem like a good idea, but he is not a good player, and bad players tend to slowplay way too much.
      3) River raises by passive players are usually the nuts, especially if u bet a healthy amount. I would bet 80% of the pot on the River
