      have to say that I would never raise JTs but this was maybe situation for it.
      Is it???
      I guess flop play is standard?

      JTs is too weak to raise OOP in my opinion. Maybe I would complete on SB and see what flop brings, since playability of JTs is very high postflop.

      As played, I think shove on flop is standard indeed.

      Hey Brundoo,

      I dislike JTs when playing out of position. If you decide to play it on the SB/BB then raise 4bb+1bb is a must.. If you want to Isolate, the positions CO/BTN are thé positions to do it from.

      I suggest you study the theory of isolation raises from xarry's review or articles first before you apply them.

      As played
      preflop to $2.5 and with OESD+1OC, meh it is marginal but I like the FE in the end so I would shove it too

      Best regards,
