      what sort of range are we looking at for an unknown? as a rule of thumb against unknowns. also, is it advisable to cbet here? if so, how much? :D

      Hard to say a thing about unknowns range when he folds this flop. Could be a small pair (22-66), AQ, maybe if he's a bad player, AT, KQ. Cbetting this flop is quite fine, because AQ, AT KQ can't continue here, they just don't know how much ahead/behind they are.

      yeah that makes sense. when i ask what range he could have, i mean after he calls the 3bet.

      The range is still wide against unknown, it might be that, even wider.. We don't know his style, yet.

      Against a reg it's likely PP's or AQ+.

      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: 3bet it still bigger than just 3x being OOP.
      Postflop: Well, with some backdoors you can still CB it but to give him a range, way too difficult if no information even. :) Could be anything to very nitted range.

      Best Regards.
