      Hi :)

      i isolated with KK, and got a caller in SB and original limper, for some reason felt a delayed c-bet was better, i think maybe looking back i shouls c-bet flop?

      Preflop: Definitely making it 10cents at least. Firstly, we are deep against the fish. Secondly I just think at NL2 people just call iso-raises or overcall behind you with a much wider range. Everyone plays looser in general so you need larger raise sizes to ensure that you play headsup pots more often as opposed to multiway pots.

      Postflop: I like your line, it's reasonable and we can pot control Flop. If a spade comes, that's really too bad we can just fold immediately. We can bluff catch on blank cards like this one.
