      Hi Daisuke,

      Against unknown I prefer to bet/fold the flop. He seems fishy (given the stack size).

      What's your plan on this board on a blank turn? Call him down?

      As played you have to ask yourself what do you achieve with the bet. It looks like a thin value bet (and block bet) but what worse calls us? The only hand that's worse that may call is KQ but even that's thin.

      I'm not sure I understand. You mean if turn is blank and it gets checked around we would bet the river?

      As played I think the river bet is very thin at best.
