      Anon table.

      Is this a good board try to float? Or bluffraise maybe? All broadways miss, but I dont know his barrelling habits...
      Turn is quite bad for me.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Both options are possible, though with floating you may put yourself into trouble sometimes whilst having hard time to decide what to do on a blank turn. Though as played of course we can't do there much whilst that card is the worst for us.

      Best Regards.

      Which one would you prefer here against unknown opponent, float or bluffraise? Or just fold? :)

      That's why I was considering flop bluffraise, but I dont have good equity, no backdoors or anything to barrel, if I get called...
      But because of possibly hard turn decisions maybe just better to try taking down the pot on the flop with a bluffraise...

      Usually I try to build an image of the opponent as soon as possible on anon. tables. Also using HM2 which allows to use pretty nicely session stats. Though vs total unknown I'd be willing to Raise instead of Calling, with 7 might be more inclined to float cause it may also give you extra equity afterwards.
