      UTG: $16.33
      MP: $25.06
      CO: $16.86
      Hero (BTN): $27.06
      SB: $25.00
      BB: $55.28

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with T :club: T :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.50, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, CO raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($5.35) 8 :spade: 6 :spade: 9 :heart: (2 players)
      CO bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50

      Turn: ($12.35) 2 :club: (2 players)
      CO bets $3.00, Hero calls $3

      River: ($18.35) 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      CO bets $7.86, Hero folds

      Villain is 55/28 player on 68 hands who I decide I want to isolate when he makes this fishy open size on CO. Thing is he steals 38% CO (8), (1/6) BU and (0/6) SB. I'm personally programmed to be scared of minopen/min3bet type lines because they seem like monster lines to me.

      Maybe I can ISO to $2 pre, maybe I should just call, but the moment he min4bets me is when this hand just goes off the rails. I was intending on folding turn but turned into a calling station when he gave me such great odds and river felt bad for me.

      Oh, villain does have extremely high postflop aggression frequencies, but the main thing is I got thrown off preflop and never recovered my thought process. Part of me wanted to shove, part of me wanted to give up and I ended up turning into a calling station up till river.

      Hi DaPhunk,

      Preflop: I agree with making it at least $2 there for value IP.

      Postflop: As played, on that turn blank card I still think we can call. Monsters that take this line could also be AQ/AK not just JJ+.

      If you wanted to fold I would fold the turn because once he's been aggressive on two streets (and he is aggro overall) we can definitely expect a bet on the river.
