      BTN: $6.83 (136.6 bb)
      SB: $6.05 (121 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $1.95 (39 bb)
      MP: $5.40 (108 bb)
      CO: $3.64 (72.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T T
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.14, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.48, BTN raises to $1.22, Hero raises to $5 and is all-in, BTN calls $3.78

      Flop: ($10.02) 2 T 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($10.02) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($10.02) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      How you like this play?

      Villain is unknown, german a bit deep...
      His raise seemed like a value raise, however think I have to 3bet here, I could call for set value, but TT is rather sweet in this spot, even tho he is unknown, I do rather ok against most steal ranges.

      I think it's either 5bet shove or fold pre?

      I'm slight favour against most Ax hands, but this play is high on variance, and maybe not the best for me in my current mindset?

      Hi Resilence,

      Preflop: I think that we are spewing money at 5nl versus unknown player.

      I doubt we can 3-bet this for pure value versus unknown because a lot of what calls us is either ahead or flopping and we play OOP. Most of the flops will have a high card as well. And when he 4-bets we can't stack off for value (unlike you did here).

      Calling preflop, without info, should be our default in more passive games like the micro stakes.

      Your equity versus JJ+, AK is only 33% so you need to him to 4-bet bluff a ton or stack off a lot worse.
