      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , 9:spade:
      4 folds, MP3 calls $0,50, CO folds, Hero raises to $2,50, 2 folds, MP3 calls $2,00.

      Flop: ($5,75) 4:club: , 2:club: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $3,00

      1) Can I isolate Mp3 here with A9o and a 17bb stack? He plays 12/1, read: Openlimp MP1 QQ

      2) Can I c-bet here 1/2 post flop and shove on the Turn with Gutshot + 2 OCs? or should I shove on the Flop as usual?

      i dont like your isolation here, you are not even ahead against his limping range which should always be a factor + offsuited he will limp many better aces

      1) It depends on his propensity to limp-fold and how badly he is likely to play post-flop. Easy muck mostly.

      2) Assuming villain doesn't limp-fold much then I'd feel pretty much pot-committed on the flop and would simply shove for maximum FE. This huge-nit might even fold better Ax hands on the flop.
