      Hi all,

      I thought this hand was pretty tough..

      Villain is unknown to me.

      I think 4betting is overplaying our hand in these positions on zoom..

      Now I would float AKs with bdfd on flop but I'm not sure about AKo?! Depends on his 3bet% but I cannot estimate it from unknown who's 3betting in mp. I should give him some more credit given position but we do beat some hands right? Positional disadvantage is also a factor, how big?

      On the turn the T helps my range I think so I was actually thinking about check/shipping... Would this be spew because we cannot expect unkowns to fold overpairs in this spot?

      On the river, Is leading out best? In the end I didn't do it because I thought betters hands call and worse hands fold...

      Now I tanked for a while and he bets. I couldn't imagine a hand were he could do this with for value except for A2s... He could try to bluff me off 99 or floated AKs.

      GTO wise I think we should fold and we have better hands to call? Like any top pair?

      Preflop: I think vs unknown 4betting while deep is probably overplay

      Flop: You can c/c once and showdown your hand, or you could consider turning it into a bluff if the runout is not so good. Lower cards are better for your Ace high while higher cards are better for turning your hand into a bluff

      River: The Turn brought the T which isn't too great for us. I think I would consider betting the River to rep JX or QQ and try folding out some KT/AT.

      Honestly our hand is too weak to call here, and in reality regs rarely take the Bet Check Bet line as a bluff. I think this is a pretty clear fold.
