      I'm trying to isolate a limper. What is good range and position for isolation raise? I'm isolating with QJ+ in MP-1/MP-2 and with JT+ in MP-3/CO/BU.

      I have hit TP with strong kicker - expecting to be stronger to other TP's. My plan is to bet/fold. If there is 3bet i will put him on three of a kind or two pairs.

      I have TP + flush draw but he seems not to fold so the goal was Pot control.

      I bet for value. No full-house possible and there are weaker hands that can call.

      What should I do if he had raised or check raised river?

      Isolation range is fine
      I´d also add there pp-s that can win huge pot after flopping a set
      Flop: I think call is better, since you don´t want to get 3-bet and then have to fold your hand. if you raise to protect your hand then 0,6$ is better raise size
      Turn and river are fine. If you get c/r river you should fold, since players are not bluffing enough times there
