      Hi,

      Against unknown, it is a standard bet/fold or c/c Flop then c/f Turn?
      How about IP if unknown check or dbet?
      I am not sure which line is good against unknown IP and OOP.

      Thanks.

      Hey JHTAN,

      Checking on the flop would be the better choice both IP and OOP. Whether to play c/c or c/f would mostly depend on how much would villain bet and of course you should invest at most on one street, no more.

      If you play OOP you can also consider c-betting half pot to make it easier to play, but check should result in better EV.

      Hello burek, :)

      Is that same for 2bet pot and 3bet pot?
      Besides, if we cbet Flop OOP and villain call then c/f the Turn and if villain check behind on Turn then c/f River?
      Sorry for my English, I hope you understand my question. :D

      Cheers.

      Your english is completely fine. :)

      Yes, that would be the same for regular raised pots as well as 3-bet pots, but in raised(2-bet) pots it's better to check/call villain's bet than in 3-bet where ranges are tighter and he will less likely try to bluff so in 3-bet pots you can sometimes just c/f.

      If you c-bet flop and villain doesn't fold you're done with the hand, c/f all the way.

      Hi,

      If villain check behind Flop, than we vbet the Turn or we c/c Turn?
      I mean we only get one streat value from Turn or River.

      Thanks

      Against unknown I prefer to just check and call one street on turn or river.

      You can consider v-betting if there's some good turn card like T, J or Q or if the turn card is a :heart: so he might call with one card FD, but on most cards I just try to get to cheap showdown without v-betting.
