Villain is 19/13 over 70 hands, 0% 3bet and 1,4 aggro factor.
As played, i would like to isolate opener, because he is opening wide and playing lots of pots, but i am UTG+1, so i decide to flat.
Should i bet turn if i lead flop?

Otherwise i feel like i am simply putting out dead money up for grabs, bu then again i want Ax to pay for drawing to gutshot/pair.

I think leading is fine but I would lead for a larger amount. closer to pot. As played X/F OTT.

Hi Johnnie,

If the opener is out of line then I don't mind 3-betting to isolate him preflop... your positions should serve to look strong and aid in the isolation effort.

As played I would lead the flop and prefer to bet/fold the turn... villain has 66/77/88 quite a bit. Although check/fold isn't bad, since he would likely check behind us with all his worse hands we can feel pretty comfortable folding to his bet.
