      Is it better to just call this preflop against such a nit? I 3bet it but didn't want to go broke. Didn't want to give it up either, so I called his 4-bet and decided to play only TPTK on the flop..

      BU: 12/10/14/33/33/5,5/204 (VPIP/PFR/ST/FT3B/4B/AF/H)

      CO ($4.82)
      BTN ($4.63)
      Hero (SB) ($5.42)
      BB ($4.67)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) Hero is SB K:diamond: A:spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.12, Hero raises to $0.36, 1 fold, BTN raises to $0.83, Hero calls $0.47

      Flop: 5:club: 10:spade: 6:spade: ($1.68, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.12, Hero folds

      BTN wins $2.71 (net +$0.76)

      Hero lost $0.83

      Hello Alleen86,

      Against such a nit I definitely would be rather inclined to Call. Funny to see such players in SH. :f_biggrin: Also even if you 3bet then it's basically 3bet/Fold. We can't play our hand profitable by Calling his 4bet.

      Best regards.
