      0.5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5:club: , 5:spade:
      UTG1 calls $1.00, 5 folds, Hero raises to $5.00, 2 folds, UTG1 raises to $123.60 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $130.10

      I think I have to fold this, even though villain is pretty loose?
      P.S. Do pocket pairs even warrant isolation raises - or is a fold in this spot preferable?

      If you don't have a hand that has strength post flop, then you must rely on FE for isolation raises. So either you expect the opponent to limp/fold a lot or to F2contibet a lot. 55 is a little too marginal against UTG imho, but I'm also a little unsure about isolation raises-ranges.

      Against his limp/raise it's a certain fold for me.

      Marginal hand + insufficient sample of Villain + UTG Limper + smaller stack = Fold preflop Tim!

      Determine his limp range first and then his limp/fold% before you consider making an isolation raise
