      easy fold because he is uknown very often he is going to show up with a set here and you are drawing very thin.Later if you see him doing some moves than you can think about flatting his raise.

      This is one of the toughest decisions you can make, without any reads or stats. There is no great solution... but here is my suggestion:

      Fold. The board is so dry, so hes not semi-bluff raising with a draw. Basically, it feels like a set or overpair (2 pair is also unlikely, maybe 46s...). The only hands that you beat, besides a bluff, are like 77 88 or JJ). It sucks, but folding here is the best line IMO.

      Your other options are either:

      1) reraise like 2-2.5x hit bet, and see what he does. If he just calls and the turn bricks, you can shove. And if he shoves over your reraise... well, ur likely beat but then you're getting odds to call. Sucks...

      3) call. which sucks, because when you check the turn, he will most likely bet again, and you're in a bad situation.

      I would likely also fold if he is complete unknown
      don´t expect him to raise light too often, so he either has there set or maybe slwoplayed overpair KK/AA
      If I continue with my hand i'd b/c flop and decide on the turn if I want to c/rai
