      Hi Alan,

      Preflop: Against unknown, even though our hand may seem strong, I prefer either a 4-bet bluff or fold. It may sound nitty but the alternative is playing postflop in spots where you have no idea what villains tendencies may be.

      On top of that we usually win small/medium pots at best and lose medium/big pots (and a lot of small ones when we fold flops).

      As played I don't mind the call and I'd also check the turn back because i'd expect him to barrel draws (or ck/raise a lot of value/draw for protection).

      Villain may bluff the river but it's a close spot because we know nothing about him. At least the odds we get are roughly 25%.

      Thanks Bogdan for your effort...

      I am going to reread today articles about preflop play. I think that it is still the biggest leak in my game. I don't find myself optimal 3bet situation and i dont react optimal vs 3bets. Hva to change that. Preflop play is essential.
