Hi Sle,

It's a pretty generic answer since you have no reads provided, but in a vacuum I would value bet about $1 here (and fold of raised).

Not familiar with the term "Vacuum"???


I had no prior history with the villain. I opted to check and villain showed KT

In a vacuum generally means that an action is taken in absence of any information.

You provided no reads so Dave's advice was given in a vacuum ie. without any information on the villain.
