      I'd rather call this and outplay him post-flop without further info. Later I could add some QT etc. for my 3-bet bluff range, sometimes maybe 89s etc.

      So that means 3bet is wrong play? Why?

      Hi CUvash,

      PReflop: Against an unknown opponent I don't mind your 3-bet at all. We want to take the pot down and we have an ok hand if called.

      Well played.

      I think calling this versus a potential MP tighter range is not the greatest, especially without info.

      I think 3-betting here is bad, if we really don't know villain. Suited connectors are a good hand to play IP after all. You have plenty of space to play post-flop with them, and when you 3-bet, you have to fold to 4-bet anyway. If I knew something about my villain, like fold to 3b stats, fold to cbet in 3b pots, and even the basic stats like VPIP and PFR I'd know a lot more how to play against him.

      But when UNK, I usually flat pre and use my position to outplay him.
