      Hi.

      Preflop: definitely isoraising J9s here. We have decent high card value with 2 mid/high cards and we have some straight and flush potential too.

      As played i think stacking off with JsXs is fine but i would call the turn raise with smaller flushes because i think we just isolate ourselves vs stronger flushes.

      Thanks.

      When villain ch/calls mono-flop and min-raises you on turn, I think you should consider calling down this hand. His hand looks like nut-flush, unless he is a maniac or overplays sets here.
