I'm curious to see the thoughts on this. There is a lot of PF limping in the 50NL games I play, more than you'd think. So what hands are best to raise and isolate are of big interest. I know regs love to jump on iso raises so being aware of who is behind you and how you're then going to handle being 3 bet is important.
One of the biggest factors is their Fold to Cbet. If it's really high, you can iso a ton, and just bet like 1/3p - 1/2p on almost every board
Without that information, the next thing to consider is the players left to act. Make sure you add Raise Limpers stat to your HUD. If they don't raise limpers a lot, you can get away with over-limping. Just choose hands that play well multi-way
my std was 3.5x here. dunno if optimal, i just figured i'd wanna iso quite a wide range and regs could punish that pretty hard if i 5x or w/e. but maybe that's just not happening and you lose value by doing this?
Thanks, tombos21! That is quite enlightening. I am surprised it is isolating 22 and 54s. Maybe I have been too passive.
I never overlimp in the CO unless it's something crazy like 3 rec in the BTN/blinds. We get iso-raised like half the time for a large size which is just brutal. We end up having to fold to hands that would have folded to our own iso.
