      It sucks to see him got some K9, 99, KK but let's face it he has them way more than A9 or 67. I don't know if he would isolate with them preflop.

      So as to answer your question ,since it is the microstakes, i wouldn't do anything different vs unknown guy. He could show up with K8, 9x , AA and every hand possible. But if the guy has a few drops of sanity in his game 80% of the time after the river raise you can save some blinds and just call. Since there were only 17 blinds left it is up to you.

      All in all, well played!

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Bet the turn bigger but otherwise difficult to get away here while the guy could as well have 9x hands. :(

      Also I'd do I'd use auto rebuy on IPoker. :D

      Best Regards.
