      Villian is pure unknown. I know fishes would call a second barrel though. Tighter players will fold unless they have Ax.

      I wouldn't get involved at all with an unknown OOP with this hand that actually isn't that good but that's me. However if you do decide to steal his BB than the cbet on the flop seems pretty much ok. I would check/fold the turn just because of lack of information.

      Hello ragney,

      If you are planning to Call turn anyways then fire a 2nd barrel, I don't like the Call at all, we could easily make fold a Kx type of hand but Check/Call we ain't doing that. As played Check/Fold the turn.

      Best regards.
