      Looking through PokerTracker I can see villain is a 18 VPIP/9 PFR /2 Agg though.

      fold preflop
      Your hand very bad to isolation raise. You very often will be dominated.

      Hi,

      I suggest you read the beginners articles once more or even for the first time.
      Either fold preflop or isoraise to 5xBB=0,10$.
      Postflop is fine, although you could consider a fold on river, too (FD gets there, too);
      because there aren't too many worse hands which can play this way exept of bluffs ofc.
      By betting so small preflop you kept dominating, marginal villain hands in his range.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      P.S.: Please don't post results, as thery aren't necessary.

      Hi,


      Agreed about preflop, if you're gonna play it (and value-wise you should unless you're not comfortably with it), just 5x it.

      On the flop I'm betting for value against all sorts of pairs and draws so I'm making it bigger regardless of us having no kicker.

      Turn is fine in my opinion, and the river is marginal as AninIII said. If he looks bad enough to be randomly betting stuff like Qx for no good reason there I'm calling, otherwise it's foldable.


      Hope it helps.
