      Preflop iso raise, or just overlimp oop? I usually don't raise these weak bw type hands oop because of the bad playability, but now I think iso is better, because he folds to cbets quite often. Postflop? I wanted to get it in on the flop, but after he called bet/call turn, or maybe bet/fold? What about river, we have 1/2 pot size stack left.

      Preflop: vs a tighter limper I would just limp along, since we may expect to get limp/reraised a lot. Maybe we just end up isolating ourselves vs stronger broadways. When he plays 58/7 I think we have to isoraise here.

      Flop: I don't like betting so small. Just pot it. When you are in limped pots with the nuts, just try to build the pot as much as possible. I think check/raising is also a good alternative and I actually prefer that if both players are aggro. I think 3betting Flop is fine when MP is bad/aggro.

      River: We can now check/fold. Sometimes he has AJ AK, sometimes he has KJ, and I don't expect him to ever bet his weaker QX here. Basically nothing missed and we are behind his river betting range.
