      Villain-unknown.Is it ok to call villain's raise on flop.I dont know with what hands he would raise me here.Maybe with 33/44/AQ/AK a against which I am wb and bluffs but I dont want to get it in here.I decide to c/r turn to let him barrel worse hands(if there are any) and his bluffs but here I also lose to A10.Line suggestions?

      you can 3-bet flop and play for stacks, since there can´t be too many ugly turn cards I like your b/c on the flop and then c/rai on blank turn
      He would bluff there sometimes or have some kind of flushdraw, so I think you can´t get fold your hand especially since most players would 4-bet pf AK and won´t call 3-bet A3s, A4s, 44/33

      nh sir, I think that his raise on the flop looks like a one time play at the pot, taking a cheap stab trying to make you fold anything other than an A, which I think he would have accomplished if you had JJ here.
