      I'm not folding preflop for sure for those odds. but I think I would fold the Turn. Don't expect the average fish to randomly min3-bet preflop and bet F shove T with too much air - You are usually beat by some two pairs, stronger AX or a set.

      Anyway I think your preflop iso-raise is questionable. I would probably prefer limping in the SB, being OOP here. If you were in BU and the limper was in the CO, then isoraising could make more sense since you would have position on him after the flop.

      However, if you do know that the limper is playing weakly on the Flop and folding a lot to Flop Continuation bets, then iso-raising would be better.
