      Villain is unknown

      Preflop: Plan was just to 3b/fold here. Until I know the villain better I expect them to only 4b QQ+ AK, which I think is reasonable. However, I still think that villains will call with a lot of dominated AX IP and I can still extract lots of value postflop, so I thought that this was better than calling and playing OOP postflop w/o initiative.

      Flop: I think his 3b calling range is something like: 22-QQ, 9Ts-KQs,KQo+,AT-AK. I obviously bet for value and protection on the F, but when he 3b shoves all-in I don't really know whether he spazzes out with like AT/AJ and draws here without further reads.

      Do you think that b/c vs his 3b shove here is reckless? Am I going to be seeing 66/88 often? Should it be a b/f? If I am not prepared to b/c in a 3b pot with TPTK on such a board, would you prefer flatting preflop?

      I like your 3-bet for value and BU vs BB I won´t really 3-bet/fold AK, since he can always 4-bet bluff or 4-bet/call wider range than QQ-AA, AK

      Postflop it should be b/c, since you should see flushdraws a lot more often than some two pairs or sets

      best regards,
