      Hero bets 6 BB, BTN raises to 14 BB, fold

      7 hands on him.

      Tough spot, so I fold. I did bet nearly pot size to avoid bluff raise, and to protect from fd (but how many fd call here if there is A on board? ). His mini raise confuses me, wouldnt he raise larger with set to protect?

      Should I play the same if there is no fd on flop with identical cards against unknown?

      Hey,

      He's unknown, you have a weak hand vs his value + bluff range, just fold. I wouldn't bet as big as you did though unless I'm trying to get value from a calling station. You dont have that read so I would bet a more usual sizing of aroun 4.5-5bb.

      Just think how you are doing against his range, you'll see the decision is quite easy here.

      Without a flushdraw it's probably still a bet/fold. If the average aggression of your opponents is high, you might not fold to a raise.. Usually at NL25 it is a fold though..
