      Preflop I have unknown player against me,but he seems to be some weak player ...he limped preflop few times and was 3beting preflop quite often .

      So I choosed just to call it . I was afraid ,that he could have better hand ,cause he was unknown and I didnt want him to fold.

      I flopped TPTK,just check call . I think it's normal.

      Turn i chose check/call.

      River is dangerous ,but I dont think he has some strong hand ,because he checked behind the turn ,when FD came,so I chose some small value bet to get value from something like maybe weaker K,Qx,JJ maybe...

      Hi Treyking,

      Preflop: I don't like calling 3-bets OOP with hands that rarely flop anything. Given his smaller 3-bet as well we should just 4-bet and get it in here. If you are "afraid" of a better range or think that villain is stronger given the reads you have we can just fold prefop.

      As played we can bet like $2 on the river.

      Given the amount of information we have yes, that's what I would do.

      Calling is by far the worst option in my opinion due to our poor playability OOP.
