      Sorry about 2 hands in one topic, but they are quite similar.

      I think flop and turn I should call always, but river?
      Due to they are both unknown opponents, I have to treat them like standart regs. So what do you think?

      1) 8/8, 13 hands, unknown.

      Preflop is close, but I prefer to call (he raised before 5 hands of 10). I don't want 3bet cause of dunno how he will answer.

      I think that in the first hand we can fold while in the second we can call more often. I am basing this on the little information that we have and mainly the bet sizes/board texture in both cases.

      People at these limit don't really valuebet much worse in hand #1 using those sizes (or bluff).
