      Villain was unknown at the time of the hand

      Preflop: Guess I can 3b preflop but vs an unknown from the CO/UTG I would probably feel more comfortable 3b/folding or should I just play 3b/broke here vs an unknown. I always feel like I'll be up against QQ+, AK+ when I get 4b. I don't mind if I'm the one 4b'ing because I feel like I have some FE*

      Decided to call and keep in his weaker range, but in hindsight I think 3b/fold is way better OOP.

      Flop: Didn't see any reason to donk really. I x/c to allow him to bluff as well.

      Turn: x/c again for the same reason.

      River: Think villain might x/beh weaker hands now so donkbet/fold the river about 1/2 pot for value from Kx and pairs.

      Hey Muel,

      Preflop: We should 3-bet 4 handed versus CO here for value. He can at least call many worse.

      Postflop: I don't mind your line here but I would donk the river big. Most hands that call there can call a bigger bet, around 2/3 pot.

      Thanks BogdanPS,

      Re: the above. Would you go broke or 3b/fold. I personally don't like going broke against unknowns with Ace-high if I get 4b.

      It depends on how you view the games and what you'd expect from an unknown.

      If you can't expect villain to 4-bet bluff at least 1 in 4 times or so OR stack off with AQ then we have to fold.
