since he's trying to isolate and not bring others in (as i think he would with a made 7 or a good 8), i'm pretty sure that we're good here most of the time. i'm calling this bet, making sure gus draws, and if eli stands pat, i'm staying too and raising him after the first draw if he doesn't cap it. if he does, then i'll reevaluate and leave myself open to a fold.
I think you misunderstand. The cap refers to betting for the entire hand. Since it is capped before the draw, there will be no more betting after the draw. And this is single-draw no-limit, so there is an only draw, not a first draw.

lol, i am not paying attention, like, at all.with only one draw, i'm still calling. this has got to be an isolation cap by something that's vulnerable. when someone does this on a LAG like gus, i'm putting him/her on something in the range of a made 10. i think calling the cap quickly here will make even a 9 that beats us try to draw lower.of course, i know nothing about how eli plays, so a read on him from a previous similar situation could change this to a fold, depending.this hand was more interesting when it was triple draw (in my head :club: )

Gus is loose, makes play and Eli, raises to isolate, you have a pat hand and by calling will probably get better 9s to fold. Hope Gus is being Gus and not sitting on smooth 8, and stand pat.

I call then ifGus calls we see the flop 3 handed. If both players stand pat, I bust my 9. Otherwise, I stand pat.If Gus Folds, I stand pat regardless.

I would fold. 987 is probablly not any good with this heat. I'd like to add that I've never played this game before.

on top of that, the part that sells a call for me is, "This is normal betting in this game: Raise, Cap."So if that's normal, then I would probably be calling, as Eli probably has a one-card draw to the nuts or 2nd nuts, which we can then stand pat against. then we must keep in mind that if gus stays in, we need to be prepared to break the draw.i haven't played 2-7 NL a lot, but that's my feel for the hand.

a pat 10 is typically a 1.8 to 1 favorite against a one card draw, so if you believe eli to be trying to isolate gus's weak play.....then you have to call
