      Villain unknown - only 3 hands (100/33)

      I guess I should've raised bigger on the flop, I just have this disease that the standard raise is about 3x so I make it around that neglecting what I'm trying to actually do with my sizing, bad autopilot habit :f_p:

      Now, my question is ... can/could/should I valueraise river vs an unknown and deepstacked?

      I want to sooo bad, because a lot of bad players have this irrational tendency to slowplay and play very passively with their monsters like sets etc, and when the obvious draw hits, they just pot it all of a sudden.

      And with some donks, the same tendencies apply to drawing hands.

      So I guess on the other hand, vs unknown bad donks it's always going to be too much of a guessing game if he is in fact doing this with his busted nuts or the made nuts and I should be happy with just a call there?
