      No stats on villian. Complete unknow to me.

      Seems that being oop i often end up in spots like this. Fairly dry board. One picturecard . I bet flop&turn ( my usual line here vs unknowns). On the flop and turn i'm betting for value vs some straightdraws lower PP an 8 and basically still targeting the same range on the turn. On the river i can only see him bluffing missed straightdraws. But his riverbetsizing is so polarised and it makes me wonder if he would ever do that with a queen. Donks can take really fancy lines without them realising it themselves and i don't want to spew by calling light without much info

      Being out of position sucks and this is why :f_mad:

      I'd like some advice on how to play similar spots like the one i'm posting here. Thanks for your time and help

      Why are you even betting the Turn? And I would strongly argue for a check/call on the Flop - I think you induce way more bluffs that way.

      If you want to bet the Flop for value, you should probably check/call the Turn instead of calling the Turn. You are still ahead of a bunch of gutshots and maybe even some Ace high Flops.
