Hi Hendo,

You haven't given any reads, but I don't see why not raise the river for value. If he's got a boat he wins, it's possible, but there are plenty of worse hands he can call with as well. Without a read we don't know how loose he'll call (like as loose as KJ?), but I think we can count on getting looked up by trips, the straight, and smaller flushes with relative confidence.

If you raise all in you won't be confronted with a call option. But yeah, I would assume a random unknown 5NL player will stack it in with worse flushes and trips at least, so I don't think we're raising half his remaining stack and folding.

Zoom is not an excuse to have no reads. Never having played with this specific villain before is.
