      Both villains are unknown

      Flop: Multiway and vs unknowns: I didn't see any point in betting. I think it would turn my hand into a bluff. Plan was to just x/f unless it was a particularly small bet.
      Turn: Make it bigger here? Was expecting to see bet/call from AX or better.
      River: When villain donks again on R with such a small sizing I assumed he had a marginal hand that he wanted to get to showdown cheaply with. My plan was to raise/broke vs a 3b since I think weaker 2pr's and sets play the same way. The only hands I am worried about here are 9T/KT which I think are fairly unlikely.

      Is it better to raise/call than raise/broke here?

      raise turn bigger, to around .70, and jam river over opponents block bet.

      as played after your river raise i would most likely fold to villain's click back, as this from my experience is never a bluff, unlikely to be 2 pair combos, and most likel T9/KT type hands

      Cheers buddy,

      and jam river over opponents block bet.

      What's the reasoning for jamming? To give him the opportunity to call off with a weaker range instead of clicking back with what is more likely to be the nuts?

      Hello muel294,

      Raise the turn bigger, though otherwise either jam the river for value vs 2pairs such holdings or Raise/Fold it. Doesn't make sense to raise this amount and then even hope to be ahead whilst SD got there which will be his turn calling range.

      Best Regards.
