      BTN: $46.17 (184.7 bb)
      SB: $17.98 (71.9 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      UTG: $32.23 (128.9 bb)
      MP: $28.16 (112.6 bb)
      Hero (CO): $42.10 (168.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: Q:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN raises to $2.60, 3 folds

      This is situation I findmyself often , and yet not sure about what should I do!
      call is obviously out of option, but question is what default play should be vs unkown?
      And what if we know he is agressive? 4b and fold?

      edit : I wrote fold is out of question but ment to wrote call.

      I don't think a fold is out of question here, especially against unknown. When I don't know 3betting ranges, I usually assume tight unless it's from the blinds or BU. It depends on the standard image you want to build.

      I would usually 4bet here, but with the knowledge that I will turn a great hand into a bluff. I wouldn't call a shove as they never go broke light against unknown imho, so the intention is more to establish a non-exploitable image and build equity for when you actually have a monster.

      Hello Sinnology,

      Either 4bet yourself and which most likely should have a lot of fold equity here and which I'd tend to pick -> 4bet/Fold. :) Very small part of his range is going to continue.

      Best Regards.
