      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.17, fold, SB raises to $0.45, fold, Hero calls $0.28

      FLOP ($0.95) 9:club: 2:heart: 9:heart:

      SB bets $0.75, Hero folds

      SB wins $0.89

      Awesome example of usual trouble spot, obviously here i would 4b value and muck bluffs due to he is unknown but with hands like medium pocket or even only strongest medium pocket like tt-jj we really least want to call against this presumably looser 3better guy. Aq is even more special sure it will hit the flop 1/3 times and sometimes it even get dominated but we probably have a better option to bluff with it due to blockers, than folding to cbets or floating them against unkown and even if we hit we might have to let it go, of course folding is an option too but it feels bit weak.

      Hey Dracsharp,

      Preflop: We could just 4-bet bluff versus unknown here but calling is fine as well.

      Postflop: I may call that flop cbet if we had a backdoor to go with our hand (adds 10 cards that can let us continue).

      Like this I don't mind the fold.
