      Results follow (highlight to see):

      UTG+2 wins with two pairs, jacks and nines (7d Jd)

      Did I play it right? I have open str draw and overcard. Since my left stack was around the pot i had decided to go all-in. Any suggestions?? Except that i shouldn't get involved in a first place.:) (Comment)

      As you said, you shouldn't get involved into this hand. And the fact that the limpers were loose... ...from what I heard you must play tighter against loose players, not looser. ;)

      Anyway, about your hand, you played nice. You were the preflop aggressor and you hit a draw on the flop which means you have to go broke.

      Hey bah22,

      isolation as a move is ok, however, not necessary to do on NL 100) (i was though)

      1) BU is a better position to isolate (your example shows why)
      from CO you should be tigther, but AT is fine

      2) wait for mid-late limpers, even loose players won't limp total trash from UTG.

      3) its more profitable to isolate with reduced stack 15-18
      22 might be a bit challenging, especially, when you get only 1 caller

      otherwise fine
