      MP: $4.40 (110 bb)
      CO: $4.64 (116 bb)
      BTN: $1 (25 bb)
      SB: $2.15 (53.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (125 bb)
      UTG: $4 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4 7
      2 folds, CO calls $0.04, BTN folds, SB completes, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.12) 2 7 4 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.24, CO calls $0.24, SB folds

      Turn: ($0.60) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO raises to $4.36, Hero folds

      Results: $1.80 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 2 7 4 J
      CO mucked and won $1.68 ($0.80 net)
      Hero mucked 4 7 and lost (-$0.88 net)

      CO's stats: VP/PFR/AF/WTS/hands 54/0/1.0/0.0/13
      SB's stats: VP/PFR/AF/WTS/hands 67/17/10.0/40/18

      This was such a difficult decision. The opponent is almost unknown. Does look fishy though. Either way – I am lost here and have no real thought process. How can one have a thought process against unknowns anyway?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Not worth calling anyways here while it's just a freeplay pot and he could easily even have sets/better pairs as J7 on the turn.

      I don't get your question "How can one have a thought process against unknowns anyway? ".

      Not sure if I got it correctly but practically you just have to take rather passive approach when you are against unknown.

      Best Regards.
