      unknown guy

      Mostly i just fold pre vs unknown but his 3b is kinda small and i decided to call ip.
      What d you think of calldown? we have good odds but it will be rarely bluff and we dont beat QQ-KK that can play this way too.
      What do u think of turning our hand into bluff on some point?

      Hi VzLOM,

      I think, that turning this hand into a bluff is not a good idea.
      That's because, bluff = making a better hand to fold,
      but QQ, KK, Ax aren't going to fold often.

      I think that his 3betting, squeezing range easily could be:
      - all pairs
      - AJ+

      Which is why, I think way ahead/way behind play here is OK.

      Also, putting these ranges into equilator: AJ+, 22-TT, QQ+
      you are getting about 50% equity on all 3 streets.
      So, you are doing great here. Nice hand! Well played!

      yes but what he's doin with lowpairs \ midpairs? Betting for value or for bluff? I think value is pretty think esp w lowpairs and if he would like to bluff he prob would bet flop and would bet bigger on next streets. But yeah - anyway its hard to fold here.

      I think, he could be betting the T with that previously mentioned range, but on the R it could be like:
      AJ+, 77, 99, TT, QQ + , which is 35% equity for you, so calling small raise like 7.5 $ into 33.5 $ pot is OK call.
      Only against AJ+, TT, QQ + you are in a bad shape, about 15%, but if we put any other pair (except 88) in the range,
      then we can call profitably (getting about 3:1 odds and better).
      He is giving you about 4.5:1 odds

      I think you see boat more often than KK/QQ
      So I´d prefer folding river
      Since BB could be squeezing here then 4-bet/calling shove is also fine line to play your hand

      emm we are not beating both of them ) anyway...
      About squeze i think 4b\calling pre would be like turning our hand to bluff. Usually i can see that squezes against utg-mp openraises are stronger than co-bu raises so i think mainly this range could be pretty strong esp vs unknown.
