      Preflop calling is good fishes in the blinds will join too and if we isolate we will have a weak ace usually in a multiway pot, but it depends, against unknowns i like this play.

      Postflop is standard as well, i wouldn't bluff the river versus unknown representing the straight we beat his draws anyway. From flop and turn action i would expect least tp so he is probably on c/c at the river up to a reasonable amount.

      Hi mrbeast,

      Preflop: I don't like the limp behind here. We have position and a playable hand so we should raise to isolate.

      Postflop: Since it's a limped pot I'd like to be doing the betting so I'd bet the flop.
