      Youre in trouble anyway. With 3bet you'll have FE, and he's not going to have AKs all the time.

      And against a tight passive player, you can always get rid of TPGK, because most of the time it won't be enough against his broke range.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: Nah, it's not that wrong to Call vs BU who definitely will even have worse Qx/Kx hands in his range. Another option would be to 3bet depending on the opponent.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, depends really what kind of opponent he is, do you expect him to 2nd barrel here? If you do then Checking the turn is fine, another option would be to even donk the turn to protect your hand. But as played I'd definitely bet it smaller to give him room for hero-calls with weaker pairs, there ain't gonna be a lot worse hands which will pay you, I'd bet ~$0,80.

      Best Regards.
