      Hero bets $6.25, BB calls $6.25, BTN folds,

      BTN: 39vpip/3pfr/ 48 fold to cbet in 2.3k hands
      BB: 47/4/ 18 fold to cbet in 103 hands

      1- Is the raise pre-flop interesting at all in this situation? They are obvious fish with high calling range, so I just expected to have their range dominated even with KJ.

      2 - The flop seemed a bit tricky for me, I get both a Fd and gutshot, but then again they are not clean outs. Looking back at it, I think the push was a bad idea.

      Hey dandycal,

      preflop the stats of BU and BB indicate their very loose nature preflop and for this reason I would prefer to complete KJo preflop instead of raise, because if both opponents remain in the pot you'll be in tough spot playing this hand OOP against 2(specially when you don't have a made hand).

      As played, on the flop your T outs are clean and I think you can count 5-6 outs for FD thus you have 9-10 outs which is enough to push. So, well played.

      Regards,
      burek2000

      Hey Burek, thanks for the advice. One further question. How about if I was sitting at the BTN with tight SB and BB behind me, then a raise pre-flop sounds fine to isolate the fish, since I'd be playing IP?

      Indeed, that's a perfect isolation raise opportunity. ;)
