      Hi,


      Against an unknown I'd just assume he has Qx and bet strong until I get raised. We won't make enough money out of suspicious people calling again with a pocket pair to balance out what we lose against Qx by not betting bigger.

      As played he could be completely full of shit since our bet was so small, he could even have Qx 'figuring' like "it's a small bet I'm gonna raise it with my top pair!" for no reason, and of course he could have 7x. Best option is to just not bet so small ever to lessen the extent of the guessing game, and once you're there I'd say call the turn with those odds and see what happens. Most people won't jam the river with bluffs/Qx at this point.


      Hope it helps.
