      PRE
      Limp-raising usually means strength. However this was not the first time I isolated him BvB. Also he seems rather aggressive, so I decided to call IP, as he could be making a move.

      FLOP
      He would bet, if he was (were?) bluffing pre-flop so I decided to play careful. He easily could have AA, KK, JJ, AK.

      TURN
      I think I should give up here, can`t see him bluffing/betting worse.

      Hi diena,

      Has he limp reraises us before?

      I agree with your line of thought here if this is the first time he pulls this move.

      Hi Bogdan!


      I isolated him BvB once or twice before and this was the first time he played back.

      Ok, while he could be pulling a move these type of fish love to limp/raise stronger hands so unless we've seen him do it a lot (and thus less likely to have a strong hand) I don't mind your line.

      The alternative is to bet/fold that flop (1/2 pot or so).
