      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($29.38)
      BB ($23.81)
      UTG ($24.62)
      CO ($5.69)
      BTN ($20.89)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: 8:heart:

      fold, fold, BTN calls $0.20, Hero raises to $0.80, fold, BTN calls $0.60

      FLOP ($1.80) 6:diamond: 8:diamond: Q:diamond:

      Hero bets $1.80, BTN folds

      Hero shows Q:heart: 8:heart:

      Hero wins $1.71

      BTN: 44/17 18h

      BB: 20/16 277h

      I don't want to call because there is reg in BB who can raise and I will have to fold then. So insta fold, or isolate is option. Is it strong enough?

      Hi.

      Preflop: Q8s is probably strong enough to iso-raise by default vs a BU limper but if you have reads that this guy doesn't fold often to Flop cbets then I prefer just limping along in SB. If the limper was in earlier positions I would just limp along.

      Flop: Just bet 3/4 pot, don't need to pot it unless you think he's a huge calling station fish.

      Thanks.

      I use this logic: if he calls, he calls any amount up to pot size at least with Qx and draws. So I bet pot for max value.
