      MP1 stats 29/6 AF:1 WTSD:10 W$SD:100 fold to flop cbet:67(3) after 53 hands.

      Pre flop: I think with this hand ip is good to isolate.

      Flop: bad flop for me, but I think I can have some FE and my plan for turn is to bet on non club 8,9,T,J, what do you think? Maybe I should bet on non club Q, K also? Or should I just give up on the flop?

      Turn: bad card.

      River: gives me a straight, but I don't see value here, I think he will call me here only w flushes.

      Hey Winner,

      Your hand is a bit marginal to isolate since your opponent doesn't play just about any hand. That said, with position it's fine.

      On the flop I think cbetting is OK, he has low WTSD and so far has shown he can fold to cbets.

      Turn give up makes sense to me as well. I would barrel same cards as you with adding Q and K. Tthat is because Q and K high don't float and your opponent will have a way weaker hand with his A high and midpairs. On those 2 cards I would 3 barrel on blanks.

      On the river, check back sounds good, you should win at showdown often enough and it's very hard to get value.
