      Opponent: multitabling 3-6 tables

      Preflop: I might be getting this only now but should I really be calling a hand like this preflop against a multitabler on whom I have only 69 hands and whose game I have not been inspecting up until that moment? I mean, I do not know that much about his postflop game and to call this only in hope for a hit should certainly not be good play. Neither can I play back at him too much without knowing him too well. Doing that would probably simply be spewy at best.

      Then again, can I 3bet? Once again I do not know that much to 3Bet it OOP. His WTS is rather high, even despite the sample size. If I had to choose, I would prefer 3Betting to calling this hand.

      All in all: would you agree that a fold here preflop is the best choice?

      Postflop: The flop check/raise without knowing how often he cBets such a board looks like spew to me. The turn bet after choosing such a flop line, however, is a must in my opinion.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: As long the opponent is unknown I would just 3bet it and find out how he adjusts rather than Call and never even know how he plays postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Not really a huge fan of Check/Raising here without any information and neither we don't even do with very strong draw ourselves. Just trying to gain fold equity.

      Best Regards.
