      Opponent just sat to a table and played 4 hands in a row. This is the 4th one. I get my two pair on turn, he calls my reraise, and the shoves my value bet. What should I do in this spot against unknown opponent? easy fold, or go broke?

      Hello ryciaga,

      Rather bet yourself the flop & turn and protect your hand. :) And neither I don't get your Check/Raise size on the turn? What's the idea of it? As played the river is a Bet/Fold, you are mostly beaten there vs the shove.

      Best Regards.

      I agree about the turn reraise. So 0.33 should be ok next time? but what about that shove. What you are putting him on? a set? or 53? A9, A7?
      Because I think, that he would have reraised me again on turn with a set and some possible draws in order to protect his hand.

      What do you think about it?

      I would do pot size which is = 3x bet size + pot. Most likely a strong made hand what beats us. :) We ain't putting a opponent on just one hand.
