      Preflop I don't mind isolating since we have position here.

      So lets review the flop call.
      Basically, we have a decent made hand, have position plus are given very good odds to call. But is calling really so easy?
      I think that we definitely have to think about the later streets when we call. What are the possible bad cards that can come (nearly the whole deck would be a bad card for our hand), what if he continues betting - can we call him down and basically what's our plan.
      Overall I think calling here can lead us to a lot of trouble on both turn and river so we have to think over the other two options - raising and folding.

      I think raising could be a good option since - we get called by worse (hands like FD worse 6x) and definitely don't mind to make him fold his JT or so.
      If I go for the raise I'd plan to bet the turn and check back the river.

      Folding is another option, if you feel uncomfortable raising here and I prefer it to calling.

      As played on the flop, I'd just fold the turn here.

      Folding river looks fine.
