      Unknown.

      I think that Cbetting this flop is ok in these positions. He doesn`t rep much with that raise, so i decided to call the flop and reevalute the turn.

      On the river? I`m not sure if i can call here. His sizing looks like a valuebet with rivered A? I also doubt that a raise will work often enough vs. unknown, unless i raise really big (shove)?

      Hi.

      I think that looks like an obvious bluff card, so I'll probably call.
      About the bet-size, we shouldn't read too much into it IMO. Some people are capable of bluffing with half pot bets to look like they are value betting.
