      Villain is a Tight REG = 13/7/2 af/23 wtsd
      fold to 3b = 75%
      ATS = 21%
      flop cbet % = 75%

      This is really just a preflop question: what would have a higher EV here a flat call or a 3b?

      Flat: Obviously vs this player if I flat call I can play IP and pick off c-bets by floating and so on since he will c-bet his air a fair amount, with a cbet% of 75%, however I can not do this on a lot of boards and I have to expect to be able to outplay or outflop him a lot.

      3bet: He is stealing fairly wide in this spot fairly often. In addition he is folding to 3bets regularly allowing me to take down the pot uncontested often. In the rare event he 4bets I can safely fold, but is 3bet/fold too spewy?

      Hello muel294,

      Preflop: Well, against that kind of tight-nit and while he ain't even stealing that much. I'd really rather prefer Calling. With Calling we keep weaker Ax hands in the pot also we ain't isolating ourselves against better hands.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much to add. Against that kind of player I wouldn't CBet either, most likely just Check it behind and be happy if we get a free card. He will usually have some kind of PP I guess which he called like that. Not many hands we are making to fold.

      Best regards.
