      I should probably skip the flop cbet, but assume it isn't a very big mistake.. He can fold some middle pairs..

      Hi Alleen

      What is the purpose of your 3bet - bluff or value? What range do you expect him to have on the flop?

      Since villain is unknown I would just call as I expect him to have a somewhat wide range and by 3betting we turn our hand into a bluff (we isolate ourselves vs a stronger part of his range).

      I would 3bet vs a reg who can fold and call vs an unknown who I assume to be bad postflop.

      Hi Alleen,

      Preflop; looks fine as a b luff but I'd add 1-2 BB since we are deeper

      Postflop: Cbetting the flop and giving up is marginal because usually pairs don't fold on that dry flop and a good portion of the broadways that call hit the Qx.
