      29/2/0 over 60 hands

      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Holdem
      5 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by

      UTG ($45.91)
      CO ($7.38)
      Hero ($22.44)
      SB ($35.26)
      BB ($29.59)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) Hero is BTN 8:spade: 5:spade:
      1 fold, CO calls $0.20, Hero raises to $0.80, 2 folds, CO calls $0.60

      Flop: 7:diamond: 6:club: 2:club: ($1.90, 2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.40, CO calls $1.40

      Turn: 5:club: ($4.70, 2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: 4:diamond: ($4.70, 2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Is this hand good enough for an isolation raise?
      Is there value to be had on the river?
      I somehow got scared and didn't bet.

      Only read I got on him is that he completed AA on the SB first in, and checked down on 48K5J board.

      Well obviously if you have previous information and he did that with aces, then we mark him as a complete fish.
      There is definitely value in raising the river here, i mean what if he just limped aces again? He will pay you off with a wide range including any pair, so here is an easy bet of 3,50$.

      I´d valuebet river, since you´re ahead most of the times and he may easily call you down with one pair hand. Raising pf with 85s is fine, you can take pot down often if he misses and you can also sometimes hit monster with that hand and stack his one pair hands
