      Hey!

      That's pretty standard vs unknown. You don't know how he's gonna be playing against a check nor against a bet. But one thing you can assume is that on that board, he can give you action with a bunch of hands on a 3b pot. So the plan here should be to just bet, bet, bet. If he raises at any moment, just ship the monies in! :s_cool:

      About pre-flop: I suggest you make your 3b a bit bigger, because you're OOP. By creating a bigger pot, you reduce the importance of your positional advantage. Anything between $7-$8 is alright.

      Cheers
