      Hello zumpar,

      Preflop: What's the reason calling in first place here vs unknown?

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment, not really planning to fold my hand for the given odds. Neither doesn't make sense to raise the river cause not many worse would pay you.

      Best Regards.

      preflop : 4 handed, 2:1 pod odds.... cant really squeeze, but since its 4-handed, why not ?(

      Could try 3 betting here as his SB steal range is quite wide and he will fold often if you have been playing TAG style. If he 4 bets you fold and if he calls you are in position heads up into a flop.

      3betting and taking the initiative against wide stealing range is most likely better. You don't even know how to overplay him postflop while you didn't point out any info.
