      villain is an unknown on an anon table, seems quiet over the small time i spent at the table.

      is my line okay here? the board is pretty dry for him to call on the flop so i'm not sure... i was thinking it will be quite tough for him to call me on the turn. i decided to check/call turn and check/call rivers to catch a float and maybe some weaker TP hands. if he checks back on the turn i'll just value bet the river. should i rather just make a turn barrel? i feel like it will fold out a lot of hands and i can get looked up a little more if i bet flop, check turn and bet river...

      thanks

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that this is suboptimal at 10nl vs unknown.

      I doubt CO will have that many floats on such a board vs UTG so you are giving his hands a chance to take a free card and potentially lose value.

      I think that bet/folding turn is fine and if called we can either bet/fold river small or ck/fold.

      I doubt a 10nl player bets a lot worse than our hand on that river.
