      villain has 43/21 stats, he is the classic loose donk You can expect to be ahead alot of the time here.

      preflop you should have raised 3.5-4x his raise = $3.65-4.20


      On the flop there is a potential flushdraw, you should be betting pot sized here instead of 1/2 pot, or in your case, shoving as a pot sized raise would commit more than 50% of your stack.

      With these stats the villains hand range probably includes a suited King(KJ KT etc), low-mid PP's, JT etc etc.

      Hey bordzter,

      I would prefer to 3-bet more preflop, maybe like 3.5$ because you play out of position postflop and the villain is likely to call even a higher bet preflop. And if you bet more preflop you can push flop directly as your c-bet would be more than half of your remaining stack.

      As played, I would raise more on the flop, 4$ and give up the hand if villain doesn't fold. I think he will have Ax far more often here than FD, because it's 3-bet pot.

      Regards,

      If you want to see some hands evaluated according to advanced SSS(based on stats) then I would advise to just take a look at NL100+ hands on the forum as they are more or less all evaluated based on statistics.

      There are articles that deal with statistics too, but they are for silver and gold members, like "Adjusting reraise ranges" and "Steals/resteals with SSS", but you can't access them till you don't achieve the status. Also there are some nice videos, but they as well are for silver+ members unfortunately. So, for now higher limit hands on the forum are your best option imo.

      And how should one play it if the opponent is unknown?


      You play the same way, because 3-betting with KK is mandatory and postflop only Ax will call your c-bet on this board, so it's safe to give up if opponent doesn't fold.
