      I prefer isoraising to 3.5 or 4bb.

      Flop Play is fine, though I probably raise slightly smaller. When you raise so large, you are not leaving enough money behind to multi-barrel and you are limiting your options.

      On the Turn, I don't like going all-in here. Our fold equity is virtually 0 when he makes such a play and he has so little money left behind. Yet we are pot-committed with our outs to the flush and straight.

      So I would call, and give up the river if i miss, while shoving if I did improve to a straight or flush.
