      vs unknow

      in fact dunt think he can call too many hands on flop
      its a reraise if he got AK TJ AA KK QQ

      what he can call? flush draw and... AQ?

      standard check fold turn?

      Hello ttjjboy,

      I would most likely 2nd barrel it while the guy has in his calling range also Ax hands, we can't put him only on FD on the flop. You said he is unknown so why would you exclude all the hands from his range which are weak? We don't even have to do it very big $6 should be enough.

      Best Regards.

      against his weak Ax, seems like we turn our hand into bluff or we bet turn in order to stop his bluffing as if we check turn he probably would turn his Ax into bluff?

      You said yourself that you don't know the guy, so everything can happen or whatever his calling range is, maybe even just some pair+draw or whatsoever. Sometimes you might even make better 2pairs to fold.
