      Villain is an unknown fish
      Is it a good idea to call two streets here and fold to a river shove? I'm having trouble playing on dry flops after I got a raise.

      Heya,

      If you fold to the river shove you assume he has a set or a flush probably and almost no bluffs. If you think he does this with many BD FDs and he is already very unlikely to have a set I would often consider shoving turn for thin value. If he did some random raise with 9x he will call you, he can feel commited with FD + overs plus vs sets you lose kind of often anyway since you're not planning on foling too often.

      In this specific case I would fold river because of the terrible odds we also get. We need to be right too often while actually having no idea about his exact range just that his value range is narrow. We don't know how wide his bluffing range is to make educated calls.
