      Hi,


      It's fine against an unknown with 75bb, if you're beat on the flop i'd say just treat it as a cooler. If we were ahead and he got there, no reason to sweat it you got it in good. NH.


      Hope it helps.

      yeah he had JJ so a set of jacks on the flop.

      thanks, i just sorta figured i was doing something wrong, like if i got reraised on the flop i should figure my one pair is beat

      so i guess stuff like this just happens and u cant really avoid it?

      Hi,


      With reads you can sometimes. Against seemingly fishy unknowns at microstakes you can't really. You'll see players raise your bet with any top pair there and call it off all the same, so it's usually still profitable to go broke when in doubt when there are very hands that actually beat you.

      Make a note on his line and his raise size on the flop for future reference. Then if you happen to catch him just calling down with a top pair, you can start making the assumption that when he raises the flop like that he has better than a top pair. It's a game of information, learning of you gather it is just as important as knowing what do to with it once you have it.


      Hope it helps.
