      the raiser was tight and was playing very litle hands . i puted his range under the gun ak aa kk qq and decided not to 3 bet him with ak because he was going to shove in most of the cases and i had to fold. i called because i think i might be good there against kk and split against ak . when he has gone all i was preaty sure i was against ak that doesnt want to see another card that completes the draw (i was hoping kk too ). i decided to call here thinking i am 80% going for a split and 20 % wining against kk. i wasnt woried about the other player because he had vpip 80 playing a lot of hands .

      Even tight players raise MP with JJ, QQ, but since you are oop and can´t call 4-bet so calling pre-flop might not be the worst thing (only thing if you call, you give MP3 better odds to call also with pre-flop and it would be bad to get stacks against set:)

      On that flop: I would check/raise. Tight player would never re-raise with A5, A4, 55, 44 and you´re way behind against AA, but you can´t play that hand passively, because MP2 could drawing (and that is not good). Myabe you´re even ahead against AQ, AJ.

      I would bet out the turn and call the shove. JJ-KK would probably cehck behind and you´re giving them free card to improve their hand.

      I don't see a UTG raise in the hand. Assuming you are SB and MP3 is the tight raiser, I'd check/raise the flop. If you play c/c OOP on an A high board, it's pretty obvious that you have TP or better... Hence, I can show that I have a strong hand on the flop and protect against the flush draw.
