      UTG is 15/12 with PFR from EP 8%.
      I decide not to 3bet him since I will have to fold to reraise. Since I'm in position I can usually get a contbet from him on any board, so my plan is to call it if I hit the flop and just fold if not.

      This is exactly what happens. I hit TPTK and just call his bet with the intention to get to showdown. But turn card is really bad for me since now most of his range is beating me: AJ, AQ hit two pair, AA, QQ, JJ hit the set.

      So only hands I beat now is TT and KK and it is very unprobable that he would bet almost pot size with these hands on turn. So the fold on turn is the best option, isn't it?

      Hey RandomGenerator,

      I like this hand. Against 8PFR I would as well cold call AK IP. You could consider raising flop, but on such a dry board it doesn't make sense and on the turn as you already said yourself there are no more hands in his range you could get value from and I also don't see 15/12 player bluffing with a hand like TT or KK in this spot.

      Best regards,
