      Villain hasn't been been at the table for more than an orbit.

      Does anyone do anything other than b/f on the river vs an unknown? Is the bet sizing on the river and earlier streets fine?

      Hi,


      As a default against an unknown I'd put him on mostly worse Kx hands on the river, which I won't give them credit for folding, so I'd just opt to bet bigger around $11.5 to get more value out of those hands and reluctantly call it off when they shove since it'll be a committing bet.

      As played folding is fine, it's tough for people to raise with anything but a slowplayed set there unless they somehow feel like jamming a worse top pair all of a sudden, which is doubtful for most of them.


      Hope it helps.

      ya thanks alot that actually does help. I assigned a similar range to villain.

      I wanted to make sure that b/f was the best line, since I used to c/c or c/f in similar spots in the past.
