unknown villain, i bet 2 streets to get value from draws and top pair hands. I was planning to check most rivers behind.
If we check the turn behind i think we lose value, but i hate facing the raise. any comments?

Hi fons,

Betting and folding to a raise on the turn here is perfectly fine. Checking back the turn (planning to call a river bet) would be fine as well. I think it's pretty close on this turn card, as this card coordinates well with a bunch of his flop check/calling range. Although the villain is unknown I think when we get check/raised large in this spot we are rarely going to be good, and our outs are unclear, so folding when you did is right imo.

With reads we might make different decisions.
