      Preflop: Iso-raise size is way too small. Make it at least 40-50 cents. You are just risking having SB/BB come along way too often with such great odds. And regardless of our hand, we almost always want it to be headsup. Especially when CO seems to be the biggest fish at the table.

      Postflop: SB takes a really weird line. I'm obviously never folding vs CO cos his range is so wide with full of BS here that I feel confident in stacking off with TPTK. What about SB? Does he really c/c F c/r T with AK? I think his line is really consistent with JJ to be honest. It's the most likely hand to play in this manner. He check/calls the Flop for pot control, and check/raises when he improves. QQ also makes sense but there's only one combo of that left when the Qc and Qd are out. Occasionally he has AA/KK played in a weird fashion, maybe he even has QJ here.

      I don't think we can ever call here when SB shows so much strength. But at the same time there is just way too little money left behind. We only need to pay 3.79 more to win a pot of 22.72. That's almost 17% pot odds.

      1) You should have just shoved, given the remaining amount in stacks relative to the pot size.
      2) While pot odds are sick I think we are crushed here so I'll make a nitty fold. You can try using pokerstove to see your equity and I'm quite sure you have <16% equity here.
