      One guy said that isolation is bad vs not much info how he folds with such hand.

      This is std isolation for me, I am isolating unknown fish even with 45s in BTN and CO.

      He siad its bad becuase he is not fullstacked so my flush value decreases. So I should use more hight cards.

      But I dont like as much to isolate with K2o as with this.

      I think unkown fish is folding enough to cbets postflop.

      Hi.

      I would limp behind 45s but T9s is a std isoraise here. U have decent pair value w your T and 9 and some draw potential.

      I would call the flop minraise for sure and decide turn. I think folding top pair right away is a little weak.

      Thanks.
