      I played this hand terribly but still don't know what should I have done. 31 hands are nothing as sample, so he could be raising with 55, 99, QT, 87, KT. Since he called the reraise instead of shoving I guessed he was on a draw (surprisingly that didn't prevent me from doing an incredibly stupid play on the turn).

      My guess is that I should have went for a block bet/fold on the turn instead of check/fold (or the worst of all options — check/shove. :f_cry: )

      Preflop: I like your size oop

      Flop: Against unknown fishy players we can easily bet/fold the flop. These min/raises can be only the nuts or as you said draws+nutty (and even 1p hands). However with no info we are gambling and we are playing OOP with 2 streets left to g o.

      So my recommendation, let's learn to bet/fold flop even with TP.

      As played I don't understand our check shove unless we want him to bet draws again and call with them, but it's hard to assume that he raise/calls a draw on flop just to bet it again on the turn.

      One of the only draws made it on the turn and even KJ beats us now so I would not be afraid of check/folding.
