      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 7 8
      5 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, CO calls $0.40

      Turn: ($3.15) A (2 players)
      CO bets $0.10, Hero raises to $2.35, CO folds

      $3.35 pot ($0.22 rake)
      Final Board: Q 2 3 A
      CO mucked and lost (-$1.60 net)
      Hero mucked 7 8 and won $3.13 ($1.53 net)

      CO is Unknown, I decided to Iso the CO Limp with 87o I like Isoing LP and late MP Limpers OTB I usualy do it with suited hands tho, but I decided to add some non suited hands in too not sure if 87o is too lose maybe 98o+ is better?

      I usualy treat Min Donk bets with contempt, on the Turn I only have 8high so I cant win a SD and I think I should be able to Fold out a stuborne 2nd Pair that called me on the Flop, might be a bit spewy tho?

      Hi BigAl,

      Preflop: Looks light especially versus unknown. Normally you want hands with some playability postflop. 78o is not that great and it's most good against player that limp/fold or ck/fold a lot of flops.

      Postflop: As played, given that we have little equity in the hand and that villain is unknown I'd just fold.

      If we do raise we need to barrel another street often (to get him to fold pairs under Qx) and that's usually not very profitable with a hand like ours versus unknown fish.

      As played I don't mind your turn reraise as the A is a great card to bluff on although I'd make it about $2.
