      Hi :)

      I am not play with full stack because I play MSS and doubled up.
      Preflop, Villian is very tight, so I just cold call and hope can Flop TPTK.
      On the Flop, Villain check to me, I dont know should I cbet or not?
      How do you play this hand?

      Thanks :D

      Given his tight EP range I'd say calling preflop being IP is fine as if we're getting it pre, we will never be favourite and mostly huge underdog, plus if blinds are fishes we really don't mind if they come along.

      If we called pre and he checked the Flop we have to take a stab to make it profitable as we can't just call and ch/f every time postflop if we don't hit, so I like that bet, I'd make it slightly more, like 0.55$-0.6$ so it's less likely he may suddenly wake up w/ thoughts like you're trying to buy that pot.

      Good luck!
