      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):
      $5.97
      MP3:
      $2.26
      CO:

      BU:

      $2.40
      UTG2:
      $2.11
      MP1:
      $1.09


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, Q.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.18) A, 2, J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.13, Hero calls $0.13.

      Turn: ($0.44) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.31, Hero calls $0.31.

      River: ($1.06) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.75, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.06.

      The villain's quite a tight and very aggressive: 10/7/8.0/29/64/57/1.1k [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTSD/Cbet/Fold to 3bet/Hands]

      Actually against a TAG is quite difficult to me, especially very aggressive one like this. Should there have been other alternative lines for playing this spot better? Should we just Fold to his donk bet on Flop or just 3bet against him?

      Hello anhvusa,

      What about his W$SD? I might sometimes even Call the river as well here. There ain't gonna be that many hands what beat us. But of course if we doubt that he would barrel 3 streets with a lot worse hands then your line is totally fine. Against rather donky line I'd also Call the turn.

      Best Regards.
