      I decide to limp CO here as MP1 has played 15 hands and has a vpip of 92. SB is a loose aggro player so I call his raise IP. This was probably a mistake now I see he only has a 15bb stack.

      After flopping a weak FD I almost pot it, is this recommended??

      Turn I pick up an OESD to go with my FD so am happy to go with my hand here and think that another bet of around pot size is acceptable??

      Preflop: I see no reason to limp behind. Iso-raising should be your default play if your hand is decent enough.

      When to limp behind
      -No fold equity on flop (opponent doesn't fold to cbets a lot)
      -multiple limpers in front (cannot isolate 1 single opponent)
      -opponent has really tight limping range (chance of facing limp/reraise high)

      As played, I think Betting large is fine and you should always barrel the Turn and decide on River. We can be sure that SB is almost always giving up on the Flop when he checks.

      I would probably just bet 70% pot on Flop and Turn and you'll still have a reasonable amount of money left on the River.
