      Turn: ($18.75) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $13.00, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $18.75.



      In this hand, I see myself already crushed by his sets, but there are also a lot of draws possible and it is a perfect board to (semi-)bluff-raise me off my overcards.

      I like playing aggressive, so I was wondering whether I can go broke on this flop against unknown (French :D )? I guess as played, it's an easy fold on the turn?

      sure, with overpair you can 3-bet flop and then call shove
      But against unknown player I´d likely also take same line, since you should have first idea what kind of player he is.
      Some are raising there always with draws, overcards, bluff; some only with sets and two pair hands
