      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      not enough hands, but the guy looked fishy
      limp flop seems weak, so I c-bet
      turn comes nice second barrel card
      too risky to play Iso Raise against unknown?
      If I don't have enough hands, I usually look at the state where they are from and if its USA I consider him as fish :)

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      PF if you are going to play it, keep to the strategy of 4xbb +1 for limpers just so he doesn't get drawn in to call. Nice c-bet and turn play. Although it's a little risky PF JQs has alot of post-flop potential so you played the hand well imo.

      Hey oedipa,

      isolating unknowns is usually a bad idea and also the country player is coming from isn't a strong enough reason to treat him as bad player. For example I play on FTP and there the very worst and very best players come from US, so you can easily step on a mine if you're not careful enough.

      So, when isolating it's good to have reads or stats(limp, limp/fold, fold2c-bet, WTS are the basic ones for isolation).

      As played, I would raise flop some more, 1.75-2$, but otherwise I like the hand. You have to push turn with 2 OCs and FD.

      Regards,
