      Hi,


      There is no good answer to the preflop choice. If he's doing that a lot it's an easy 4bet, if he never did it before either he's just starting and we might wrongly play it slow, or he only do that with monsters and we might wrongly play it fast. I tend to err on the side of caution and just calling as well, while being careful postflop if we flop TPTK on Kxy and he still bombs it all the way.

      As played I don't mind you calling those two small bets, we don't feel great about it but since he's unknown we might be ahead, so for that price and will possibly some overcards/backdoors it's worth taking the chance.


      Hope it helps.
