    Isolation is when you raise after an all-in bet to discourage others from calling so you can be heads-up.  This increases your chance of winning.  The more in a hand, the more likely marginal hands could catch.

    Works best if you have a large stack and aren't at risk.

    Isolation raising (or “iso-raising” for short) is a technique used by poker players to increase the number of hands they play against weak opposition.

    It involves raising against a preflop limper in an attempt to create a heads-up pot.
