      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9:heart: , 9:club:
      5 folds, CO calls $0,50, Hero raises to $2,50, SB folds, BB calls $2,00, CO raises to $4,50, Hero calls $2,00, BB folds.

      CO l/minRRaises me while BB defends his ''blind'' by calling, I was rather confused by the minRRaise and since Villain is quite unknown, I did not really knew what to do (call/push/fold) because I had a significant bigger stack. The only thing I knew was $4.5+$2.5+$2.5+$0.25:$2 = 4.85:1~

      What would you do? and what is your motivation to do it?

      Flop: ($11,75) 5:diamond: , J:spade: , 7:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $2,50, Hero raises to $9,80 (All-In), CO calls $7,30.

      So I decided to call this one and the flop comes semi-solid for me, CO bets 5bb into a 24bb pot roughly 1/5. Should I perceive that as Weakness or Strenght? I decided to go for it, calling would make me pot committed and fold is rather nitty but often the correct play if you are unsure.

      Best regards,

      calling for setvalue my be an option.

      2 way against this op I consider to go broke on the Flop and make a note.

      He will l/r many PP's, and some Trash, of course he is unknown.

      But more likely is to push or fold Preflop. The call from BB is also a bit unlikly, which could means, he will trap you.
