      Hi.

      Preflop: Not iso-raising here is a huge mistake. Make it 50cents, and expect to play HeadsUp in position with the initiative with a fairly strong and playable hand (high cards, suitedness, connectivity) vs a wide limping range. We don't want to let other players come along and have a chance at squeezing us out of the hand or coming along and getting a shot at taking money from the fish.

      On the Flop and Turn I dont mind just betting twice. It's not exactly a value bet or a bluff. Sometimes we get called by draws, sometimes we can hit on the River and get paid off.

      Thanks.

      Iso-raising is still better. I think a huge fish would often overcall anyway behind you, and the limper is almost always going to be a huge fish so I prefer just trying to play headsup.

      Limping makes more sense with weaker suited connectors like 45s especially if you think the limper doesn't limp/fold a lot preflop or check/fold on the flop and we don't really want to be playing with 5 high vs a calling station fish.

      But JTs is a suited broadway hand, it is just so strong and is faring really well.

      Why call if you can raise? :) I like to isolate with very wide range, even if i lose some in short term, the bad players pays you at the end. Also as the fish involved i like to have a bigger pots to play for, so raising is the best option.
