      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: We are getting 20% pot odds and with this hand we hit 2p+ only 5% (at best) of the time.

      We really don't want to get a Kx or 8x as we fear domination and can't really flop any draws.

      So based on that I would actually just fold preflop.

      I would also say that stealing with these bad hands against unknown opponents won't be that great (he may seem nitty but it's only 25 hands). You want to open hands that at least have some equity if called.

      how about hands like A6o,2Ts,97o,38s ? they are fold too?

      Yes, do you see a lot of playability with those against an unknown? A6o we may be able to 4-bet bluff with but it's not the greatest BvB.
