      Hello foolboydesire,

      If he is a nit then you can't really Call here. I'd just fold it. You would do a horrible mistake if you called. In long run you wont play your hand very profitable.

      Best Regards.

      Well, with PPs is the case that, especially with small ones that we can't be sure that we will get paid so often. :( When he is 3betting so often then most likely we wont get often enough paid. Neither we ain't getting that great odds for set mining. Rather fold also fold small PPs.
