      villain is unknown - only have 2 hands on them and they open raised once.

      should i just not bother light 3betting here? i'm not 100% sure if i should be calling with this hand instead and 3betting a worse hand?

      on the flop i think i have to cbet since it's dry, Qhigh and i have backdoor equity and can barrel on a few turns. is this just misplayed?
