      Hero raises to $0.30, MP folds, CO calls $0.30, 3 folds

      typical scenario, TPTK getting raised on the flop? Im starting to think if i should just snap fold when this happens.

      Hi Gxtwo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: First, as played I don't see why we fold the river after calling both flop and turn and most draws missed (only QJ gets there). If you thought your hand was best on flop/turn why not on the river? because he shoved on a "blank"?

      Now back to the flop. Against unknown players, unless we plan to bluffcatch 2-3 streets or just 3-bet the flop you are better off bet/folding the flop.

      This is what i meant :) It seems a standard thing that happens and i always feel i come out worse, Imean what is he raising on the flop tht we beat? draws? even then our equity isnt very good.

      Sorry about that. I could swear I saw it said Hero folds :)

      I agree with you that against an unknown opponent it's hard to put him on a range and that's why we normally bet/fold.

      He can raise KT, TT, 77 for value and draws/combo draws.

      If he is really loose he can raise worse Kx for value but that's rare.

      So by default, especially in less aggressive games, we should look to bet/fold more often than not.
