      Villain is complete unknown, 3rd hand. He did play few tables if I remember correctly.

      What is our line in this spot?

      Broke flop or call and let him spazz turn?

      Thank you!

      Probably just shoving flop. I mean you only have 12 behind so I wouldn't expect him to fold basically ever. If you call you he could possibly hit a 4-outer or w/e, so I have a slight preference to shoving.

      Again, just thinking aloud

      If villain is a fish then I dont mind getting the $ in here. But if he is any kind of reg, it seems we dont beat any part of his likely range for calling our 4b oop.

      Most ppl dont have 88/99 here so if its just TT/JJ and KK we're crushed. If he somehow has AK then he's drawing pretty thin.

      I don't really love this, but how bad would checking back this flop be here to let him bluff some turns?

      I don't mind checking back flop if he's decent and you think he's going to donk some turns to fold out our "obvious AK". But as a standard line there is of course nothing wrong with betting either. The truth is that most regs are huge nits who will just check the turn unless they have a good pair/draw.
