      I saw him several times cbeting or donking pot size and then giving up turn.

      CO 8 hands 38/20

      Is it ok sqeeze to isolate fish?

      I was a bit confused when he limped, because I saw him so many times betting pot size, so this looked like nuts to me, but I raised/fold.
      Then I didnt expec CO to call because his call limp looks so weak, so I decided to check back with weak kicker, and maybe CO spews his PP or similar. Is it ok bet river?

      The preflop squeeze is great, but make it 9 or 10 at the very least. It's a little small here and we don't want to encourage multi-way calling.

      As played, I don't think we have 3 streets of value here, so I am fine with calling (effectively checking) the Flop. Then we can raise on future streets.

      But your line is fine too, I don't think there's a significant difference between bet check bet and check bet bet.
