      villain is unknown. any comments on whether and how much we should raise on the flop. I am basically never laying down tptk against an unknown for 60bb, so main question seems to be how to play best against his range. I was thinking we should not raise less on the flop since if villain is raising a fd here, we don't want to get there cheaply. Anyone like to raise less? anyone prefer to just call?

      Thanks

      id make it 5-7 on the flop, because i think he is more likely to try to rebluff us or call with a marginal hand if we do so. I think 8 is a little over the top but obv. dont hate it

      I would also raise smaller to 5-6$. This may look to him a lot bluffier and he might shove his flushdraw or call you down with Ax but if you make it 8$ then it is hard him to call you down too often with worse hands
