      Turn: ($11.75) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $6, BTN raises to $13, Hero ??????

      Villain is kind of unknown, but playing very loose and aggressive enough. He is 63/39/25 over 43 hands. AF=2.6 I have noticed a couple of creative plays from this guy in the previous hands, but could not follow all the hands he played as I was 9-tabling. My image at the table is tight and aggressive(been playing 18/15/5), I have been cbetting and barrelling but nothing really crazy.

      On the turn I can't decide between all the 3 options.

      If i call the min raise and don't hit, the river I think is an automatic check fold. If I hit, I think I should donk the river, he may check back there. But how much do I bet if I hit? He may fold all 1 pair hands to a decent bet. So calling may be pretty bad.

      If I raise I'm commited and don't know if this guy is able to fold a pair here, so if he calls my money is going in behind.

      If I fold....?

      Hello circoflax,

      If he is a maniac I would even Bet the flop smaller ~$3 max but otherwise for the given odds I would still Call while we could easily maybe even see Check behind on the river if for example we do hit our J/Q and which could even be ahead.

      But of course just Bet/Folding is going to be rather safer play. Difficult to 3bet as you said you are against unknown.

      Best Regards.
