      QQ+ is out of his range. I gave him the odds to call prf with a PP, so a set is very likely, but given that he doesn't fold to 3bets, i had to call.
      but yeah, i can't think of another hand besides a set, maybe a flushdraw.

      if he is c/r that big he isn´t generally not folding but his c/r range for value is a lot wider than set or AJ+ starting with overcard+flushdraws, maybe any flushdraws and good Jx hands, like KJ, QJ, maybe even JTs
      So standard bet/shove spot

      Hello vmarqui,

      Preflop: Basically while he makes such a small raise I would just make a bigger 3bet like at least $4.
      Postflop: And against such a nit in SH game, I'd rather Bet/Fold it while we only see him Check/Raising the very first time and not really any specific reads. He rather Calls with any kind of PPS preflop or as well traps. I don't think that he will like ever raise there Jx and either I don't expect to see a semi-bluff here either.

      And as well it's not true that in 3bet pot TP = nuts, while we maybe even didn't do the 3bet for value and which is likely the case against that nit.

      Best regards.
