      CO ($2.30)
      Button ($1.95)
      SB ($4.20)
      BB ($10.05)
      UTG ($14.65)
      matt12341 (UTG+1) ($3.30)
      MP1 ($10.35)

      Preflop: matt12341 is UTG+1 with A, A
      1 fold, matt12341 raises to $0.40, 3 folds, CO calls $0.40, 1 fold, SB raises to $0.80, 1 fold, matt12341 raises to $1.90, 1 fold, SB calls $1.10

      Flop: ($4.30) 3, J,
      K (2 players)
      SB checks, matt12341 bets $1.40 (All-In), 1 fold

      Total pot: $4.30 | Rake: $0.40

      Not really sure what to say.... Am I aiming to isolate here? the flat caller of my intial raise was very loose preflop and had low AF, whereas the raiser had low VPIP and high AF.

      I would push preflop to a reraise. If SB has low VPIP and is reraising you he must be happy with his hand and is probably going to call your push.

      only a min-raise though so I thought he might fold to a push as he isn't as priced in...... Felt that my r-r commits him to the hand, while giving him 'better odds' as such (assuming NL10 players are weaker)

      I still push. I think that not pushing here screams "nuts".

      with this reraise you write *nuts* in the chat, a direct push looks weaker

      Yeah, don't show your nuts, just give em the shaft and push it all in! :D

      As to your question, if you flat-call the minraise in order to draw the CO into the pot your hand loses value in a multi-pot and like you say, CO is passive post flop so will only call the flop shove with a hand that can beat you anyway. Best move is to isolate with a preflop all-in, the SB has found his hand, and his little minraise is screaming "I have the nuts and want you both to call me". Even if they all fold you pick up alot of dead money, and you are overstacked anyway, so no need to get fancy. After all, you don't want to be posting laments of bad beats with AA in the downswing forum do you?
