      BB: $1.25 (25 bb)
      UTG: $2.27 (45.4 bb)
      MP: $9.95 (199 bb)
      CO: $5 (100 bb)
      BTN: $4.26 (85.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $5.34 (106.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J J
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.05, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.08, BB folds, MP calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.35) Q 9 Q (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, BTN bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, MP folds

      Turn: ($0.55) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      River: ($0.85) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      $1.25 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: Q 9 Q 4 5
      BTN showed 9 T and lost (-$0.55 net)
      Hero mucked J J and won $1.19 ($0.64 net)

      PF: Played this like crap. I should have 3-bet for value vs the BU's iso-raise of MP. But at that point, I was thinking, MP might come over the top and 4-bet. Which obviously was still a bad call as I suppose the most +ev move was to 3-bet?

      As played, the whole hand was pretty ridiculous on my part. Way to passive. But with a Flop like this, is there actually value in raising? Even if Villain's bet sizes are so small.

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: I would prefer a 3-bet versus the min isolation for pure value

      Postflop: I think that we have value in raising at least the turn and we can raise/fold. I doubt villain has a Qx given his bet sizes.
