      this made me feel like a stupid tag-fish. no idea what hand to put him on but i felt i was beat. he could be on a lower pp though.

      villain is unknown.

      Hello raun,

      against unknown villain Q7s is an easy fold preflop. If you want to steal the blind you need to know opponent is tight enough to make it profitable. On the other hand, if you have loose passive opponent on the BB Q7s really sux as it has bad postflop playability and bad equity. Besides you have to play postflop OOP.

      As played, you have to c-bet the flop as K and 2 low cards is good board to represent the Kx as preflop aggressor, but after villain calls you on the flop you have to give up.

      Regards,
