      I'm playing without a HUD. Everyone is unknown.

      Decided to defend over a 3b. I feel like we are ahead of villain CB range OTF, call and hope he gives up? Or just dump it on the flop? Maybe a donk is better to avoid getting bluffed out by worse OTF?

      Calling is fine (Without info) as we may be turning our hand into a bluff if we 3bet.

      Against unknown calling OOP will make your life difficult on the turn. Is our plan to always give up if he bets or do we plan to bluff raise or call anything?

      IF we have no plan we should fold the flop.
