      Against an unknown should we just call the river here? Is raising a bad idea ? I think we can get called by lots of worse hands at these limits personally (ThXx, JhXx, two pairs, sets, straights), or do we think its very lucky that I get looked up by worse when raising the river here?

      Hello muel294,

      We could face exactly such a spot where we get reraised again, which he could easily be trying to trap us, therefore I sometimes even prefer to just Call the hand. We wont get Called anyways by a lot worse when we raise bigger.

      Best regards.
