This hand was my 12th hand at the table, and my 12th hand vs this opponent.

Opponent in this hand had played every hand I'd been at the table for. He limped every time he could limp, but he would not fold to one raise.

I had iso'ed him twice. Winning one hand with a cbet, and losing the other when he donked into me on the flop.

This hand was the first time he had 3bet preflop.

Is my shove on the flop the best play?

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

I think the call preflop is a little thin but considering your reads on villain it might be ok. You can also just jam because of stacksizes if you think that he is light. Even though you may be dominated by some of his hands KTs actually performs ok against a calling range of most Ax/Pairs with such small stacks and a lot of deadmoney involved. You also have some foldequity when shoving if he does limpraise light.

Also, against his stacksize you should consider isolating a little smaller if you would like to fold against a limpraise. Gives you some more room pre and postflop while achieving mostly the same results (getting others to fold and gaining initiative).

You flop huge pot equity with the 2nd nutflushdraw and 2 overcards, there is already a lot of deadmoney in the pot and you can utilize a little bit of foldequity by shoving.

Nice hand!

ty. I think I also like a smaller iso there, as well as jamming vs this player preflop when he 3bets me with our stack sizes.

Hi,

I agree with the flop jam 100% given the amount of money he has behind.

I personally do not like jamming pre over his limp/reraise however. The reason is the opponent has been super loose passive pre limp/calling everything, when guys like this limp-reraise it is often a strong range and KT does not play well all-in pre vs. a strong range (I don't disagree with Felix that it would be fine in this spot vs. a range that includes Ax and pairs, but I just don't think he's taking this line with A8 and 44 type of hands, these are vintage limp-call type hands when held by a habitual limp-caller, and I think that's what he's usually going to do with them).
