      Edit; Somehow I completely read my hand wrong when I was posting and the Question I wanted to ask was therefore not applicable. This means the Question in this spot becomes;

      Isolate OOP Preflop? This Looks like a hand I would be happy raising with even OOP versus Fishy Limpers, Don't Know why I didn't Raise here but there must have been a reason that I've obviously forgotten......
      I already unmarked this Hand in my Database so I can't find it again for other Limper Stats for UTG and UTG+1, sorry.

      Villain is 18/8 with 0.9 AF on 144 hands. 15% WTS (1 of four SD's won)

      I don't understand your description. You didn't raise preflop at all ;/

      LOL, You're Right. How the hell did I manage to confuse my own Sample hand like that :p

      Hey DaPhunk,

      I personally think isolation OOP sucks big time and I would never try to do it with QJs. I would do it with high A-rags sometime so I can push flop and expect to have the best hand sometimes with A-high, but with QJ you're dead if you don't hit imo.

      As played, I like the hand, just the way I would have played.

      Regards,

      If you want to isolate, you need 1) a decent stack (not 16bb imo because then It would be isolate -> shove with 33% chance you hit something on the Flop) and 2) position.

      I think shoving preflop is better although I never did this with Q:dJ like hands since I never had to loosen up.

      If you want to raise it up then shove in my opinion especially when you have to shove any flop anyways.

      As played, no comments on that :) I like
