      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: looks fine. We can't really 3-bet for value against unknown and our hand is too good to turn into a bluff.

      Postflop: Our decision should really come on the turn. He is double barreling a blank card because I feel that in general you will get barreled on the river as well. So unless we plan to call a blank river (as the 6) we can fold the turn vs unknown.

      His river bet looks like a thin valuebet so it could be a Qx but also, rarely a Jx type hand.
