      murrek lost $0.06

      I should have raised the flop to push out the 3rd player but only realized after flatting so I decided to push him out on the flop after he shows weakness.

      It's sometimes referred to as an isolation 3bet in that spot too, since the goal is to make the coldcaller fold to be heads-up with the shorty and capitalize on dead money.


      Hope it helps.
