      Hero wins $3.32

      Villain was pretty loose pre flop, playing 64/17 over ~60 hands. That's what made me iso raise pre flop, because even if I would get called, I would have position against a bad player against which I would probably take it down pretty often with a cbet. I need to win about 25% of the time, and I think he'll be bluffing often enough here to make this a profitable call.

      Hopefully I analyzed this correctly, because I'm just not 100% sure :)

      When he calls I obviously have to slow down, but when he bets small on the river, it just feels very weak. I think he can bet a lot of busted draws or random floats here to steal the pot cheaply, and if he has A high as well at least I'm splitting.

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks good.

      Flop: We have the best hand here some amount of the time and he can even fold better hands so I would cbet. We can expect all broadways to call.

      Turn: The 6 is a blank, Tx, Jx won't really fold and draws don't fold either so checking back is fine.

      River: Villain can have a T but he is most likely betting a Jx or nothing. He rarely has 77-99. Since the bet is small and can still have bluffs (Q9, KQ, etc) I would call as well.
