      Hi,


      Without reads: no clue. Can't be that bad, can't be that good either. If he's a reg you're often toast even if he's aggressive enough for you to stuff a bunch of draws in his range, if he's an aggro fish you're way ahead, if he's a passive fish you're drawing very slim as well very often. Given his raise sizing on the flop I'd say he's either a very aggro fish or a passive one with a monster, rarely a reg just trying to make a clearly committing raise with a draw.

      When in doubt I tend to just dump ~TPTK hands when some guy check/pot-raises into me, usually when people are aggressive enough for me to profitably felt AK there I'll know it somehow. Spastic timing, weird plays in previous hands. When I know nothing often it means villain is just playing straightforwardly and AK is no good on average.


      Hope it helps.
