      Calling pre-flop is definitely fine against unk.

      When he pots the flop his range is most likely quite polarized - nuts or air - but why do you raise it? With raise you drive away all AK etc. hands he might have.

      I think turn is still fold. After potting flop+calling raise and then donking again on blank means he has an extremely strong hand that beats you for good.

      By c/raising flop vs unknown it helps me to define his range.

      It does drive the AKs away but when he is going to raise turn (which in that spot he will be doing most of the times it wont be easy to realise my equity).

      Therefore im risking less by c/r the flop in order to save more on the turn.


      Only hands I can beat are 77 to T,T. plus a random A6 and A2.


      I think I made a good fold there tbh.
