      Worth me just raising the flop here - The board didn't feel too wet so I figured I could slow play a bit?

      Turn and river I didn't love the potential flush - Just calling best - Does the raise isolate me too much against stronger hands?

      Hi Philfox,

      Preflop: Looks fine.

      Flop: The board is somewhat wet so we can still raise for value and try to maximize what we get from FDs, Jx, and overpairs before the board gets too ugly. Plus villain may be fishy because he only has 93 BB.

      I'd raise to about 0.6
