      Villain-unknown.Is call pre better vs CO than 3bet with no history?My plan is to either float flop if he checks turn or to raise a spade turn if he bets itIs raise size ok?.Is it reasonable or am I overplaying unnecessarily?What about a direct flop raise?

      - I think call is better, since you can always hit set and win big pot against his overpair and you don´t want to raise/shove if he is going to 4-bet

      My plan is to either float flop if he checks turn or to raise a spade turn if he bets itIs raise size ok?
      - should be ok, but don´t always do that since then he doesn´t really give you no credit and might easily bluffshove with any high spade

      Is it reasonable or am I overplaying unnecessarily?
      - to balance out your play when you have there sets or flushes I think ti should be fine

      What about a direct flop raise?
      - if you don´t expect him either to bluffraise back and play honest then I don´t mind it
      But at the same time you should also balance that out by raising flop AJ, strong draws and sets
