      Villain is unknown.

      First off, is this a fine board for a cbet against an unknown? I wasn't sure what to do, so I just decided to cbet it, with the intent of giving up if he called.

      FWIW, I told myself "don't call, don't call, don't call" on the river and I still called :facepalm:

      But what is the best line on the river? Bet/fold? Check/fold? Check/call?

      I realize that at least it's not bet/call :facepalm:

      Hello,

      Against unknown I would just check/fold the flop. Don't really want to cbet on this connected board being OOP.

      Once the 6 hits the turn, checking is fine.

      I think we should take the bet/fold line here on the river, but as we have such a weak kicker I would bet something like 1/3 pot here.

      Best,
      Plamen
