      Hello,

      Preflop I prefer 3betting here.

      As played preflop, I like calling the flop. We have two overcards and gutshot, and also have position.

      On the turn I prefer folding here. We didn't improve and our opponent keeps to be aggressive, so I'd just give up.

      Best,

      Well, it's BvB so we can get called by worse here plus we'd love to just take the pot right here.

      Of course calling isn't a bad option if you have some specific information, but since SB is unknown I think 3betting here is fine.

      1) If we assume that we are ahead with the straight/TP, we have 10 outs, thus only need 0.23$ implied odds on the river to call, which is a 0.16PSB. Surely we have it.

      2)THe bet size got smaller, which I assume he would never do with a strong/premium hand.

      But since he looks weak, I'd rather utilize my FE. With 10 outs, and this raise size, we need around 35% FE, which we have imo.

      The question is, do we have the 35% FE to raise; 16% implied to call; or none of them, so fold? :)

      Well, it's hard to say since he's a complete unknown.

      I don't think raising here would be a good idea since we don't represent anything and it would suck if he calls down with A2 or something.
      Calling is questionable since all of our outs can improve his hand so we have a lot of reverse implied odds.

      Overall, I think that without information we should just play straight forward and fold this one.
