      Hey,

      Villain is a reg (he's playing a lot of tables). No stats.

      This hand is too weak to defend on the flop right?

      Hi Farmarchist,

      Against an unknown reg we shouldn't defend this on the flop.

      We could raise as a bluff but we aren't really representing much although villain will have such a wide cbet range that he will most likely still fold enough. On top of it you said he plays a lot of tables so he will probably not think twice and fold a lot of his range.

      So in these spots I either fold (most often) or raise.

      Allright :) . Decent spot to raise imo because we are also unknown for him! =)

      Yes, at these limits, versus multitabler (and also because people cbet these boards with almost 100% of their range).

      However don't get into bad habits because a decent hand reader (NOT great, just decent) will see through this because we really don't represent much with the raise.
