      Hero (BTN): $11.26 (281.5 bb)
      SB: $3.76 (94 bb)
      BB: $2.27 (56.8 bb)
      CO: $5.77 (144.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB raises to $0.36, BB folds, Hero calls $0.24

      Flop: ($0.76) 2 9 J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.38, Hero calls $0.38

      Turn: ($1.52) A (2 players)
      SB bets $1.14, Hero calls $1.14

      River: ($3.80) A (2 players)
      SB bets $1.88 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results: $3.80 pot ($0.25 rake)
      Final Board: 2 9 J A A
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$1.88 net)
      SB mucked and won $3.55 ($1.67 net)

      Over a sample size of 107 hands my opponent had the following stats:
      16/13/11.5 (VP/PFR/3bt)

      His stats seemed solid, which is why I called instead of 4betting.

      Flop is standard, I guess. The problems arise on the turn and river:
      As much as I'd be inclined to fold on the turn, the card is a perfect scare card for my opponent: the problem is: is he aware of that and can I make the assumption that he bluffbarrels twice in such a spot OOP in a 3bet pot? I decided to call because I had a flushdraw and I still believed he could bluff there. But was the price not too high?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: While he is such a nit then Calling should be fine.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, although I don't like the idea of Calling the turn, I just don't see what we beat there.

      Best Regards.

      I don't see villain continuing with weaker hands after my 4bet. Isn't 16 13 rather nitty afterall? Would the 4bet be preferable solely because of villain's stack size?

      Oh, actually thought it's NL10. :D But anyways, your play then is totally fine, but I'd still fold the turn. :)
