      I'm studying SSS and playing tight. Haven't seen my opponent in action much and I assume he is also playing tight. Any comment on what I should've done in this situation is welcome.

      Hey eglipt,

      Welcome to the SSS forums!

      Preflop and flop c-bet are well played. However, you only have trash hand on the flop, because you can't really consider your hand 2-pair because one pair is already on the board for you and your opponent thus you have a pair with one overcard.

      On the turn I would prefer to just give up because if opponent called your c-bet on this dry board he is not very likely to give up his hand to a second barrel, so just save the money for a better spot and check/fold all the way.

      As played, betting turn again might be ok because a K is a scare card, but after opponent shoves you have to fold because there's no worse hand opponent will shove there except a bluff.

      Regards,
