      Hi there,

      Is my bet/fold turn line pretty standard, or I screwed up something as usually? :f_rolleyes:

      Also, aren't we isolating too thin? Or vs. a villain that can open-limp from UTG it's fine?

      Preflop I'd make it at least pot size.

      This is a spot where we can consider checking back the flop in order to let him bet his weaker hands.
      Of course, betting is fine, since it will show profit.

      Betting the turn is fine of course - there are worse hands that could call us, and if we get raises we have to fold.

      On the river checking behind is good. No value in betting here.
