      Hi!

      Villain is a tag reg, 13/12/2.5 /3b 3.5%/3b mp 1%

      Just wanna check this quickly.
      His bets were almost instant 2/3, so he knew what he was doing. I put him on AK and shuld have folded right on the flop.

      Your thoughts?

      Thanks!

      since it is utg vs mp in 8 handed games where people usually doesn´t 3-bet light, then i think you can 4-bet with Kk and play for stacks
      He doesn´t have there aces too often and would likely stack off with QQ+/AK, so you rather make sure all the money goes all-in pf than seeing flop and sometimes have to force best hand or letting him catch up with you

      13/12/2.5 fr reg doesnt 3b QQ and AK vs utg. i fold pre as standard, but given 120bb effective, i call for set value cuz u get 15:1 implieds here (call 4 to potentially win 60)

      if a K flop, i probably donk 3 streets small


      1 out of 20 times he might be bluffing Ax pre ..... but some of those times he checks it down on very low card boards cuz u often have JJ-KK in your perceived range. u wont ever get exploited, esp on those limits


      as played this hand, fold flop. he can play perfectly against u ip + he mostly has u beat anyway.

      I agree that nl 50 rush players mostly doesn´t 3b pf QQ/AK, but at regular FR table it depends so many factors that players can easily 3-bet there pf QQ/AK, so to me it is mostly stack off pre/postflop since I would open around 15-20% hands utg, like 22+, A2s+, AJ+, so i think villain would adjust to that by 3-betting me lighter than KK+
