      Hello,

      I would usually isolate pot size preflop.

      Bet bigger on flop - around $0.24-$0.26.
      As played, I would 3bet bigger - like $0.85.

      On the turn we do have less than pot size bet so I would just shove.

      Best,

      Hello,

      why don't we just shove the flop? Turn can bring many nasty cards and I can see worse calling.

      Basically because we are just a little bit deeper and this would show a lot of strength, but definitely with this being NL2 it won't be bad.

      What do you mean "isolate potsize" when we are talking about pre-flop?

      Well isolating means that we are raising and trying to isolate against the limper.

      With potsize I refer to a potsize raise (in this spot 4.5bb - 9 cents).
