      BTN: $14.63
      Hero (SB): $10.55
      BB: $17.76

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with 9 :heart: 9 :club:
      BTN raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.90) 5 :heart: 2 :spade: J :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.73, Hero folds

      The opponent is an unknown.

      I was sort of scared of his big preflop openraise + big cBet size on the flop and decided to go for the safe option and just fold. Too difficult without position.

      However, if his sizing was smaller, still given that villain is an unknown, would it make sense to call? Is our plan then usually to hope that villain won't bet on either turn or river?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Could easily even Call here but if you see the size rather strong hand then your play is also fine. Though vs smaller ones I'd definitely Call it.

      Best Regards.

      Unless we know something about villain's multibarreling tendencies we pretty much have to fold on most if not all turn cards vs the 2nd barrel, even on blanks, right? But it is still +EV to call vs unknowns because often enough villain's just shuts down on next streets anyway? Is that correct?

      He is very often going to Check behind without having a hand, so you have pretty easy decision there. :)
