      why not bet the turn??!

      his river raise looks like a 'pleno overbet entire range special' after how weak your turn check is.

      Hey dzikson999,

      Vs unknown with a low-ish 3bet stat, pretty standard preflop fold. When his 3bet starts approaching 8% then you can flat with this hand.

      On the flop flatting is ok since villain's range is tight-ish. A small raise may get called by AQ, KQ, and depending on if villain is ever bluff 3betting preflop, any 9x , KX, maybe QTs,TJs etc.

      As played you definitely just want to bet the turn for value.

      When villain bets huge on river he probably just backed into a flush and is looking for a hero call. Folding is fine. Usually he won't play AK or a set this way, he'd just bet the turn. Something like A:dJ or A:dQ is his most likely holding.
