      Hello,

      Against unknown I prefer 3betting this preflop.

      As played, I'd either check/raise here or just check/fold.
      I don't like check/calling since it puts us in a tough spot when we just hold ace high.
      Check/raising is an option since we have the backdoor FD.

      As played, turn is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Different scenario now: I cbet to scare away missed sets because I assume that's most of a limpers range, but then he calls and I miss the turn. What to do?

      Hey,

      In this spot, on the flop, we should be aware of his fold to cbet. If he doesn't fold at all, I wouldn't really cbet on this board.

      As played, since the card connects with the board and the opponent is a fish, I would just check/fold here.
      Trying to bluff a fish out of a pot is really bad.
