      Is iso raise proper? When I iso raise, I use wider range if fish folds > 50% to cbets (this guy 56%) so I can play it profitable also when I miss the board, and stronger hands when fish is calling station.

      When he shoves, I put him on fd, also Jx, maybe overcards, so I guess I a doing fine versus his range given the dead money.

      Hi,

      I think it's fine, he will have enough flushdraws and some worse Jx to make a call there plus not all his value hands shove, some call or raise smaller.

      Regarding preflop, your thinking is correct. If you can force people to put in dead money in the pot, that you take down later, just abuse that ability. I think maybe you can make a smaller sizing a bit preflop since he is also short.
