      Hey tryhardnoob,

      Against unknown I would just stick to the raising chart and continue here with JJ+/AK(the range you use to continue when you get reraised after your openraise).

      Most of the time this line is typical monster line, so I like the tight JJ+/AK range to continue, but sometimes fish get tilted or some fish are more aggro and can also l/r any PP or Ax+, however that's read dependent and you can go all-in with TT if you observe the tables and get such a read.

      Best regards,

      Hi burek,
      How do you treat preflop minraise (2x) before you in MSS?
      You said that you treated it as 2 limper in SSS.
      How about MSS?
      I mean against unknown.
      Thanks.

      To be honest, it depends(also applies for SSS). If I move up the limit and most of the player pool is unknown to me I give much more credit to players(specially because regs on NL100+ use minraise as their common preflop raise), but once I play certain limit for some time and I know more or less most regulars then I will usually treat minraise as 2 limpers, because unknown player will usually be some casual/fishy player.

      And what's more, even after 20-30 hands the stats give you kind of idea which player's minraises you should be careful about and which are just loose and can be treated as limpers.

      Usually I don't have a general rule here, it's by far the best to gather as much information as fast as possible.
