      Hey noulispa,

      I don't expect iso-raising ATo oop vs this type of opponent to be hugely profitable in the long-run, but it is definitely fine.

      With top-pair-top-kicker your flop + turn value bets are fine. You can get called by worse Tx, straight-draws, and flush draws.

      On the river...

      Actually I hear this a lot but it's a myth. If your opponent is weak and has a wide bluff range, and you have a good bluffcatcher, it would basically always be better to check-call than to bet.

      This particular river is awkward because it does connect with your opponent's range. Check/fold is fine. If the river was 2 a check/call here might be great.

      hey ,

      "don't expect iso-raising ATo oop vs this type of opponent to be hugely profitable in the long-run, but it is definitely fine."

      I dont really get this he is fishy he is limping from CO (which it might not make huge difference cause he is not to positional aware). But i always iso against one limper with not a super short stack or sth. Why i shouldnt iso raise it ? with a9s a8s its more understandable but i really think its to nitty to just complete? or muck it pre ? (but i see that u say its definitely fine) .

      Hey noulispa,

      I wouldn't read too much into it.

      According to stat he is playing 30% of hands. If we give him a 30% range in equilab and remove the top 11% of hands which he is open-raising --->

      Villain 40.92% 38.57% 2.35% 99-22, A9s-A8s, A5s-A2s, KJs-K7s, Q8s+, J8s+, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 75s+, 64s+, 54s, 43s, ATo, KJo-KTo, QTo+, JTo

      Hero 59.08% 56.74% 2.35% ATo

      Coupled with the fact that you are OOP (and may fold best hand more often), + paying rake, you are not going to make a lot of money in this spot. It will still be profitable though more than likely - but it's not like you are crushing his range or anything.
