      Opponent is unknown 4-tabler. I don't want to play 4bet-call because of isolation. Do you think folding here preflop is a weak play? What do you think about our line postflop vs unknown? Can we find fold somewhere since we in in an early positions, which means he probably has a narrow range?

      How would you play this speculative spot?

      Hi Vladimir,

      Preflop: I feel that his range has at least a few 3 bet bluffs and most likely AK, QQ+ (some even have JJ there) so I don't think you would go wrong with a 4-bet.

      And I would prefer a 4-bet rather than call OOP and play vs unknown postflop.

      Do you see any additional value in a call? Do you expect villain to bluff multiple streets (remember he is unknown)?

      Yeah, thank you. Very optimistic for me to bluffcatch here. Versus whole that range really much better to 4bet-call here. Also I think I've played the hand in the worst possible way. I really wanted to fold on the river but as usual coudn't find it.
