      Hi,


      BB is an unknown reg, the game just got HU after 3rd player left.
      We dont have any relevant history or dynamic

      pre and flop is standard I guess

      Turn: I dont see him bluffing this card often, but he can still bet some bluffs w/ equity like T7, J7s, 75s.. maybe some AK combos trying to realize equity


      River: not much I can do, cant really rep much by raising..
      had he checked the river, I guess we have to check back cos we beat most of his bluffs and hes not folding any better hands ..

      Thoughts?

      because of the fact BB is unknown player I would just fold preflop.
      I think that it's default play.
      without any info I wouldn't call it...
      for me standard call is with AQ or AK stuff like this...
      maybe I'm wrong but I remember one video when coach from HS sweats another mid stack coach and he recommends folding this stuff vs 3b unknown player.

      For me call flop is okl. We have gs, back door flush draw.
      but how do we want to play the turn? It's a good question..

      I would fold on the blank turn like in this case. I would look for but I wouldn't know how to play it. Just double float or reraise?
      I'd like to know why? why double float is better or why reraise?

      hi

      Just fold the Turn. It's a bad card to barrel which basically makes his barreling range stronger on average. Unless you have reason to believe that villain will often bet Turn check/fold River, then the double float makes more sense.

      Defending here seems really standard - They are kind of deep, and the 3-bet size is really small. This is also headsup and the typical HU player 3-bets here like 15% of the time, which makes this a pretty easy defend with any suited broadway.
