      Villain is unknown

      Is it better to b/f or even b/c turn here? My reasoning was that he plays a good amount of 6x hands this way and another thing is I wasn't comfortable to get it in on the turn so I didn't want to see him raising.

      After his riverbet, I don't see him calling worse when I raise so because I don't know him I decide to just call it down. Or should I raise it up?

      Hello Zeffke,

      You raise the flop but you don't bet for value on turn? :) Why?

      River raise = overplay again as with 33.

      Best Regards.

      First of all tnx for the review.

      Should I b/f turn or b/c then? If I bet like 2.50$ in the pot I get odds of +/- 29% to call a shove if I'm correct. Or just bet/fold smaller amount?

      I doubt that you are going to see a lot of Check/Raises here on turn, he ain't overplaying his Tx hand unless he is spewing. So I wouldn't really worry much about it. :D Even if you would get Check/Min-Raised or whatsoever I might consider folding be safer. Betting like $2,50 should be enough.
