      Hey ilidek,

      Preflop iso-raise is fine. When BTN 3bets against your MP iso you should fold. You are not getting the right price to set-mine, and you suffer from reverse-implied odds.

      As played the only reason you should bet turn is if you felt villain would call with ace high. I'd probably just hope to check the hand down.

      River is awkward. In all likelihood villain just has a straight. He doesn't need to have random hands like T:d9 very often to make a call profitable though so calling is fine.

      Yeah, he might even bet bigger if he was bluffing.
