      Against totally unknown I'd rather skip this preflop, especially SB v MP. I'd rather test him IP, gives us much more room to play postflop.

      As played, I'd check flop, not much value in betting. If he stabs, I'd ch/call once, and reevaluating turn. As it turned out, I'd fold to raise. What does he bluffing with? QTs, AQ/T9s maybe, or sometimes turns lower pockets like 99 into bluff, but I wouldnt expect that very often. He has a strong preflop calling range anyway.

      Hello dzikson999,

      What's the point of CBetting the flop? You ain't really making many better hands to fold. Rather just Check it and most likely Check/Call and reevaluate further actions.

      Best Regards.
