      Unknown opponent, he's been passive so far at the table and this is the second hand he played in 10 hands. First of all I think I could have created a better SPR but I was totally unprepared for a call. Postflop I'm not sure what's the best line. I just wanted to boost his confidence and induce lighter calls but he instantly shoves the turn.

      hmm 4bet sizing vs known i don't know, maybe a bit too big?
      I think 13 is enough, allows u to 4bet bluff cheaply. but not a big issue when you are 4betting someone who seems strong.

      I think if you want to be balanced you can just bet Flop and give up to ease playability.10-12$ is good here.

      As played when u opt for the check/call line i think im definitely not betting turn as well. River is interesting and I would probably bet really small like 1/3 pot to get called by QQ or something along those lines.

      but the T on the turn is a terrible card. think about what you are actually beating...

      AA/JJ/AK/AQ/TT all beats you, you only beat QQ
      so I am actually just c/f-ing now

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      No need to Bet the turn anyways, not many worse hands Call you there and his range may easily contain those TT/JJ/Ax type of hands and of course Ax which could easily even be trapping. Most likely he wouldn't even be Betting with QQ there anyways and we will see a free card if he doesn't have the hand.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks for the feedback :) . Well, unknown means he is a fish. I know all the regulars and he was playing at only one table. That's why I bet big, and I think I shold have made it 20$ for an easy shove on the flop. Once these guys 3bet they usually have a hard time folding the hand.

      About the 4bet I would say pretty standard one to do it 2,5x, especially being OOP.
