      Isobet is fine...

      Flop:
      Might bet bigger to protect...

      Turn:
      Bet is fine might have to make it a bit bigger?
      Now why did I call his shove... big mistake right, I kinda read him as being very aggressive Thought he was bluffing, I have a blocker for kings, so really doubted he had KJ, I don't think he would have played this way... ofc he left after
      Well anyways they don't shove unless they have a very good hand like 2pair etc
      These things usually happens to me after an hour of play, and mostly on normal tables, I have no idea how to correct it, as I look it true I would have folded to the shove, but was so sure he was bluffing...
      Who plays like this? fish! :P

      Anyways it's so hard to learn this way, but I better suck it up, was horrible play right?

      Turn raise on micros=nuts.

      Even against aggro apes, I wouldn't go till the end with KQ here.

      Hey Resilence,

      Preflop iso-raise is fine.

      Flop is a clear value bet. I think your sizing is fine as standard - since this guy is probably a fish a larger sizing might work as you say.

      I'd bet again on turn for value there are plenty of worse hands that call. I think your sizing is fine.

      Turn is probably a fold. Similar to you I feel he has more bluffs in his range when he shoves compared to when he raises small. He still has value enough that you can't really call though.
