      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      UTG: $51.24 (205 bb)
      MP: $25.50 (102 bb)
      CO: $50.29 (201.2 bb) unknown
      Hero (BTN): $37.15 (148.6 bb)
      SB: $24.74 (99 bb) 22/12/0%3b(152h)
      BB: $30.21 (120.8 bb) 20/10/0%3b(10h)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T K
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.50, Hero raises to $1.70, SB calls $1.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($4.15) Q J 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.80, SB calls $2.80

      Turn: ($9.75) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($9.75) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.80, SB folds

      Preflop: I raise to isolate CU because his range looks weak (position; sizing), I have a blocker and a nice hand to play IP. Blinds seem tight.

      Flop: the broadways hit his calling range fairly hard, but I think a cbet in position with my OESD is fine hoping to fold out smaller pockets and Ax. What about my sizing here? I'm not too bothered about protection because I don't expect this player to have many flush draws OOP in a 3bet pot.

      Turn: changes nothing, so no point barreling. Just take the free card and hope to hit.

      River: what about sizing here? Should I go bigger on the basis that he is never folding AQ,AJ and probably not calling with anything worse anyway?

      I dont mind iso3betting vs someone who seems to be a weaker player but i am flatting here vs a reg. Flop size is too large imo. This is a 3b pot amd we should not be betting 70% pot at 100bb stacks. Just bet 60% pot

      I dont mind checking back this turn cos it brings so many draws. Are u saying that u will only bet on a non blank like 8/club as a bluff? I would just fire most non pairing turn cards but i think a heart on the turn just makes him call with JX again so i think giving up on a heart is fine.

      River size could be larger, 2/3 pot. It looks bluffier and i doubt he ever folds a Q.
