      PF: Was thinking if it's too loose to iso-raise J9o for value?

      Flop: Bet for value on relatively dry board vs smaller PPs and protect against Ax hands

      Turn: Think I should have bet here for protection vs 77s, pair that has a Flushdraw now like Ac6c and Ac3c. I will then take a free showdown. I thought it was abit thin though so decided to check behind for pot control instead and see if I can induce a bluff.

      River: Quite an ugly card which completes backdoor flush and also 6x which calls me on flop now has me beat. I was going to fold to any bet more than 1/2 pot. But he bets so small I think I have the right odds to call vs his bluffs.

      Pf: marginal vs utg limper. It rly depends on his pf looseness. Since he is in co i think its fine.

      I slightly prefer bet flp bet turn check river but ur line is not too inferior. Reason being he would raise us if he has us beat but he will continue calling with all those pair plus draw hands which we can bet for value against.

      When u take your pot control line, u have to call on all rivers regardless of betsize (unless it is an overbet or a coordinating straight card)
