      Villain unknown.

      Happy with my play, apart from the turn, should I check/call here or continue to semi bluff as the 9 gives me more outs?

      Hey Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: What do you expect an unknown villain to raise us on the flop with? We do get some odds to call there but we have a pretty weak draw.

      Once we lost initiative why are we donking into him there? We are running a big risk of being shoved on and taking ourselves out of the pot. Or did you plan to bet/call versus the fishy guy?
