      Villain is more or less unknown (at the time of the hand, I had 9 hands on him). I never know what to do on the turn in this case, just check-fold? Other comments?

      I like check/calling turn if you believe he floats flop. Quite often you see people call hands like AJ, 88 there then bet the turn without thinking about it too much so I think you do get bets from worse hands against the standard NL25 player. I would play the same as you in this spot usually.

      The other consideration is to vbet since there are 2 draws he can call with and that you can represent yourself and induce light calls from A high and all midpairs that I said would bet quite often anyway but in this case you choose your own sizing and well, it depends how you construct your range, where do you want this mediocre hand to be: barrel range or check/call range.
