      Hello RubyWesson,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      You can't put opponent on just one hand. And as long we don't even know the opponent it should be a Raise/Fold on flop rather than go broke. Even sometimes I would just Call it on flop and reevaluate further actions.

      And if we put him on higher ranges like higher PPs/pair+FD or whatsoever hands we don't get that good equity as you wrote down.

      Best regards.
