      I think folding preflop is OK-ish. I don't think I'd make it too often but like I previously said: folding AKo when you open UTG and you get 3bet it's not a huge deal. BB calling is also a bit interesting. He could do it with a lot of weak hands but could also slowplay some hands. It depends what you think of him: extreme fish that just called a pretty suited hand or thinking recreational that calls monsters?

      You need to be more confident in your assumptions against a standard NL50 reg or unknown already. You've played NL50 all the month I think. You need to have solid ideas to play vs unknowns. If folding here is what you think is correct it's fine but you definitely, definitely need to be more confident in such spots that happen so frequently.

      Yes I know I should mate. I think I'm not talented in making those general assumptions vs unknowns and I still I'm unsure in many spots. I think I can only fix it by practising and keep posting hands?

      Well, these guys look passive so I don't give most unknown passive credit for thin 3bets or 3bet bluffs. I also think BB's range here is weighted towards pretty hands like QKs, QJs, TJs, KJs and some PP's like 99-JJ. Yes he could flat strong hands too but even most passive fishes like to play those fast.

      Well, put them on ranges and follow the hand in the replayer in HEM or in game. For example, if you think someone has a strong range and gives up easily on Q72 or smth like that, you might overestimate the strength of their range. A strong range hits that too often to fold a lot so look for such anomalies. Showdowns are the best of course, but this also matters.
