      Villain is a relative unknown

      Preflop: didn't really see any reason to 3b vs UTG here. I would expect most players to fold and only continue with QQ+ AK here , so I would only ISO myself vs a stronger range. Decided to call and keep in his weaker range

      Flop: Expect him to c-bet 22+ AJ and QK here maybe some AQ/AK so decided to call and re-evaluate since I think raising might turn my hand into a bluff.

      Turn: Since I didn't know anything further about villain I assume he would only barrel here with something like TT+,22,AJs,KQs,AJo,KQo

      Board: J:heart: T:spade: 2:diamond:  2:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    55.57%  54.32%   1.25% { TT+, 22, AJs, KQs, AJo, KQo }
      CO     44.43%  43.18%   1.25% { QdQs }

      Should I just be folding here vs unknowns?

      As played...

      River: I called because I thought he might play AJ this way but obviously this is only a very small part of his range. The vast majority of hands that he triple barrels like this probably have me beat

      Although against the following range I actually have enough equity to call here don't I?

      Board: J:heart: T:spade: 2:diamond:  2:spade:  2:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    59.68%  58.06%   1.61% { TT+, 22, AJs, AJo }
      CO     40.32%  38.71%   1.61% { QdQs }

      If he plays AJ this way then we have 40% equity and we need 30% or better in order to make a call profitable (2.3:1 OTR E* = 1+2.3:1 = 1/3.3 = ~ .30 *100 = 30%)

      If he never plays AJ this or bluffs missed draws (which I think is the more likely case) then we are boned.

      I think vs a UTG raise this is a river fold we lose to 1010, JJ, KK, AA I don't see him firing 3 streets without a strong hand.

      Hi Muel,

      Preflop: looks fine although I think that if you were to 3-bet you can still get called by some worse hands but usually not many.

      Postflop: If he can bet AJ then we are fine but then again he may not even open AJo OOP and a lot people may play passive there and not bet this big with AJ type hands. It's a tough spot but in the end given the limit/board I think a tight fold is not the end of the world given that most people don't valuebet that much.
