      I think we can either fold or raise (if we just call we end up folding the turn always if he decides to continue barrelling). Against unknown which do you prefer and why?

      If we looks his stack size, then we can tell that he is most likely bad player. So he could easily have a lot of hands on this board. I think i don't like to raise flop cause u isolate yourself with better hands (and its hard to balance). I think calling should be ok, cause then u can keep his bluffs in. But it is hard to bluffcatch on this board, so i dont expect him to keep bluffing on this board also. Reason: your range hit this board fairly often.

      I would also likely raise, but instead of min-raise I usually tend to make it 6$. Calling is not the best, since he can start barreling you with worse hands and you can´t call him down. Why I would usually raise is because players tend to c/c their showdown hands and would lead with air
