      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $101.27
      MP2 (Hero):
      $35.41
      MP3:
      $18.15
      CO:
      $22.50
      BU:
      $50.27
      SB:
      $29.58


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with T, T.
      Hero raises to $1.00, MP3 folds, CO calls $1.00, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.35) 2, 8, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO raises to $4.00, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.85.

      Villain is unknown. What is the right play here?Isn't villain's raise usually a bluff since if he had a king or a set he would have simply called on this dry board?Then if I put him on a bluff is raising the right play?What if I raise him and he calls-how do I proceed on the turn?

      Agaisnt unknown in these spots I think folding is a good options, I don't like playing this weak but firstly I wait for a few hands to pass, get some reads/notes, and after that do any moves.

      If you raise it I guess you have to make it like 9-10$, the pot would be 20-22$ with you having 10-11$ effective stack remaining. It doesn't look 2 good imo vs unknown with second pair on a K high board.

      I also don't like a call on the flop because you can't know if he is continuing his bluffs or just betting his value hands etc.

      Hello jozata,

      Even if has a bluff there I think it's more often better to just save our money and try to get at least some stats/reads on him and then play back against him accordingly, playing back against a unknown ain't the greatest idea, also being OOP adds us even more hard to continue it. Therefore Bet/Fold.

      Best regards.
