      Villain unknown.

      Not sure what line to take vs unknown.
      Just raise & try to get it in OTF? problem is hes probably folding almost all worse hands to a raise.
      On the other hand, there is a lot of action killing turn cards that he just c/folds.

      SB: $32.57 (130.3 bb)
      BB: $34.84 (139.4 bb)
      UTG: $25.10 (100.4 bb)
      MP: $34.02 (136.1 bb)
      CO: $34.82 (139.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $26.70 (106.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J J
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB folds, BB raises to $2, Hero calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.10) T K J (2 players)
      BB bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75

      Turn: ($9.60) 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $6.30, BB calls $6.30

      River: ($22.20) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $15.65, BB folds

      Results:
      $22.20 pot ($1.11 rake)
      Final Board: T K J 8 T
      BB mucked and lost (-$11.05 net)
      Hero mucked J J and won $21.09 ($10.04 net)

      Hi Danny,

      Preflop: Looks fine. Against unknown 4-bet/stacking off may be too light.

      Flop: Why not raise the flop? We want to get max value from AK, AA, QQ and if he has broadways that he 3-bet as a bluff we can also get value from JQ, KQ. If he has AQ we lose our stack anyway.

      And I prefer the raise here because the turn may bring a card that kills our action somewhat and we may not be able to get all the money in.

      The idea here would be to raise the flop small enough where he doesn't fold all worse hands. Can we really see him folding AK/AA/QQ to let's say a $6-$6.5 raise on the flop? Villains at these limits still call way too much against unknown raises so I think we have lots of value to get.
