      Full Tilt, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BB: $66.30 (132.6 bb)
      MP: $51.65 (103.3 bb)
      CO: $56.20 (112.4 bb)
      BTN: $162.45 (324.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $55.75 (111.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A J
      MP raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 2 Q 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $2.45, Hero raises to $10, MP raises to $24.10, Hero raises to $54.25 and is all-in, MP calls $26.05 and is all-in

      Turn: ($103.80) 4 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($103.80) 6 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Is calling pre better than cr/f against unknown?
      Can I profitably play cr/ broke vs an unknown on this board with a NFD?
      What about donk/3bet?

      Hi Jozata,

      Preflop: looks fine. Our hand is good enough to play versus MP even if he is unknown. 3-bet would turn this into a bluff.

      Flop: Let's start the discussion with a few questions.

      A) Why raise so big?
      B) What range do you think he 3-bets?
      C) When we shove do we expect FE or worse to call? Goes with B)
      D) Where do you think the value of a NFD comes from? Stacking off or somewhere else, or both?
