      But not fold postflop. (more tigher range - like TT+ AJo+ Suited broadways?)

      Hi Urmo,

      Preflop: I don't mind an isolation although it is towards the loose side (As long as the fish doesn't play super aggro where he puts us in tough spots postflop).

      If he was a calling station we'd want to isolate hands that can flop enough that we can valuebet for multiple streets (or flop strong equity). So big pairs, big aces, big broadways are all really good.

      Against a station we wouldn't be betting without much equity in the pot.

      Postflop: As played I think we should cbet/fold this flop with our over + backdoor flush. The flop is relatively dry. I would bet $1.5 or so.

      As a side note, once you leave a reply that you'd like us to see please hit the "advice judge to take another look" button.

      Best regards,
