      Hi Nip,

      Preflop: I think that we should not limp behind MP and just isolate him.

      Postflop: As played your bet/fold is fine.

      Why?

      Simple:

      1) Gain initiative and isolate the fish. Play HU with the fish or just scoop up the pot.
      2) Prevent others from entering the pot cheaply or raising us.
      3) Prevent giving away the strength of our hand

      Don't we want to play with the fish HU, with position and initiative? What's better than that? Don't we want to scoop up the pot when we miss (7/8 times)? or do we only want to win when we hit?

      We can limp behind when there are many fish and playing HU is very hard or when there are multiple limpers already in front of us.
