      I have the question how to play pocket pairs vs limpers and calling stations when they have more than 40 VP? Should i izolate with raise when im sure that he is calling and than what to do on the flop when he has fold to c bet mostly 0? Here is one example.

      $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players

      UTG ($2.03) 102bb
      UTG+1 ($1.51) 76bb
      CO ($1.69) 85bb
      BTN ($1.87) 94bb
      Snafu (SB) ($2.18) 109bb
      BB ($1.72) 86bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.03, 6 players) Snafu is SB 7:spade: 7:club:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.02, 1 fold, Snafu raises to $0.10, 1 fold, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: Q:spade: J:spade: 9:spade: ($0.22, 2 players)
      Snafu checks, CO bets $0.12, Snafu folds

      Final Pot: $0.22

      CO wins $0.33 (net +$0.11)

      Snafu lost $0.10

      Hi Adam,

      Preflop: looks fine. I would isolate to play HU vs them and usually pairs still have some value. If they are calling stations they will call many Ax or draws so we can bet 1-2 streets and try to get to showdown.

      Postflop: This is a board that I wouldn't bet either. There's no value in a bet nor can we really bluff.

      There will be boards that we have to let go with a wide range, and this is one of them.
