      No info on villian. I think fish mostly does it with premium cards. But I cant fold preflop.
      And once I hit, which street should I fold? I think surely not flop, because he might cbet with JJ, QQ, KK, but how often would he barrel turn with weaker than AQ?. Then, when I call turn does it make sense to fold river?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Since villain is unknown we don't really know if he can raise only premiums like this or other hands as well.

      One can assume that fishy guys min 3-bet a lot for value but there are the ones that 3-bet like this just because they can.

      With that being said I would look at playing my hand cautiously postflop.

      As played vs unknown postflop it's a bit of a gamble and I feel that on the turn is where we need to make our decision. IF we call turn we call river (or just shove turn) or just fold there.

      Against unknown that min 3-bet me I would most likely opt to fold the turn because I don't usually see people 3-betting like this preflop and then betting so strong with weak hands or bluffs.
