      Hey, here's #4...

      I'm getting the idea that any raise in NL2 = the nuts so I guess I should have bet/folded the flop but it felt too weak. Then I just shut down into chk/call mode. As stated in other posts I didn't have any useable stat on villain so not sure how aggro they are. Do you think any pair is bet/fold on say any J or higher non-paired flop?

      He is slightly short. I'm not sure how passive he is but if there's a chance he overplays draws or top pairs, I would just 3bet the Flop and play for stacks.

      Of course if we knew he was more polarized in his 3betting range (only raising strong made hands like two pairs or sets, and some combodraws and air, as opposed to raising some weaker made hands like top pair etc, then I think bet/call flop makes more sense). If he is really passive and plays his draws passively and never raises bluffs and usually has stronger made hands here, then bet/fold is the best play.

      I think without reads I prefer 3betting flop.
