      Opponent is unknown 8/8/10h.

      There is 2 questions:
      - What do you think about turn? Can we still find fold, if the opponent is completely unknown adequate?
      - Can we call preflop if there is no agressive dinamic and prehistory? Which lines are possible postflop then?

      Preflop: You could find some arguments for slowplay preflop some % of the time for balance and then use a c/r line postflop with TPTK but I think standard should definitely be to 3bet here given starting positions. The average player opens 25% from the CO, and AK is crushing such a range so we should definitely 3bet this as a standard.

      Turn: Don't see how we can ever fold with top two here, he can have worse value hands for sure.
