      My first question: being OOP does it ever make sense to automatically call in such spots not knowing the opposition's range only because the odds are good? Does it ever make sense to call min3Bets OOP with such medium strength hands that are dominated often?

      As for the hand – I decide to call preflop because of the odds since my opponent could have decided to become tricky with QQ and KK as well, against which I am not doing THAT bad, and he may sometimes have a weird random hand as well.

      The flop is confusing because of his betsize but a call there should be standard. He looks very much like KK or JJ maybe. Or he could have a set with AA, with which he does not want to scare off weaker hands but that is a bit unlikely because I have an ace.

      The turn makes me very confused. Villain suddenly bets big on a blank card. So the first thing that comes to my mind is that he is even worse than his open limp / raise line made me think at the start of this hand. I decide to call once since he might have turned his random JJ, TT or any other weaker hand into a bluff to get me off a queen maybe. But this is actually where I am not too sure that my line is good. Maybe could have folded directly on the turn.

      On the river I just decide that villain usually has me beat and fold. Does it make sense to call turn and fold river?
