      Hello!

      I cbet the flop close to pot. Turn could improve his flushdraws, but I think it's not that bad card because it's not that often in his range after calling the flop. I decided to bet/call shove with my overpair + flushdraw there, but he folded..

      MP: 24/6/3,0/17 (VPIP/PFR/AF/H)

      Hi Alleen

      Assuming MP3 is a fish (his stack size / stats) you could raise 5 BB, but if you isolate with a wider range raising 4 BB is fine (I do that). If you are a tight guy, raise more.

      FLOP
      I like your flop bet. You didn't provide reasoning though :f_biggrin: My reasoning would be that #1 the board is very draw heavy and #2 he calls with FD/SD/weaker OPs/pairs+draws very often so we can get more value.

      TURN
      I like your bet but my plan would be to bet/fold.
      Turn is an ugly card and I wouldn't expect to be ahead if he ships/raises on this turn. It is more often a made flush / weirdly slowplayed set / straight than a FD. Also, I don't see him check/raising 77/88/TT in this spot.

      My 2 cents.

      @Dawidas888

      The looser the player, the larger you should iso-raise with your stronger hands. No need for balance, if you are iso-raising with a weaker hand you can raise smaller.

      If the table has more aggro 3betters then a 4bb iso-raise is better. If the table is looser then you should raise larger.

      Here I think 5bb makes more sense since this is an NL10 game which is presumably loose and passive.

      Hi.

      I would bet 80% on the Flop and 60% on the Turn. Your bet size should largely be based on your relative hand strength and I think your hand is not so strong now on the flush completing turn. Thus you should decrease your bet size so as to keep villain's calling range wider.

      Hi mbml

      I agree with you, raising 5BB is probably the best as players don't adapt and are loose passive. I think about balancing in wrong spots :f_cool:

      Thanks for the correction (I won't balance my preflop openings too much either).

      Thank you both!

      @Dawidas888
      My reasoning for betting the flop that large was the same as yours would be. :f_grin:

      Looking now, I think that bet/folding the turn is better because as you said, he won't often check/raise the turn with worse..
