      The decision to iso/limp depends on a few things which determine how often you can get the pot headsup as opposed to having multiple callers behind you. When you are playing in a multi-way pot, the advantages of having the initiative is greatly diminished since you cannot bluff so effectively.

      1) Position - If you are in later position, raising is better with fewer players left to act behind you
      2) Tightness of villain - If villain is tighter, the likelihood of getting limped/reraised is higher
      3) Looseness of the table - The looser players are at the table, the likelier it is for them to overcall behind your iso-raise

      I think all things considered, this is NL10 and not NL2. I think players are much tighter in a FR game, and also we are in the CO which is fairly good for iso-raising here.

      I don't get it, why is it, that if the villain is tighter the likelyhood of getting limp reraised is higher?, doesn't that mean that he usually limps pockets? And I don't see a lot of limp reraises in general. I think there is a slight chance of that happening, and if it does I have an easy fold. But I may be wrong...
