      Your hand may look pretty but vs someone with such tight stats and relatively passive it's mostly a bluffcatcher vs someone that seldom bluffs. He is probably value betting a FH himself. The question is does he bet a worse FH? He can have TT, JJ, QQ, rarely 9x. Although he does have 9x (but really rarely since he is tight) I lean towards a fold. If you JJ yourself I would absolutely consider bluffcatching vs him since we beat 6 extra combos of TT he has in his range.

      Personally, I prefer cbetting that flop for value. Your opponents range is mostly made of pairs and hands like AT+, KJ+, QJ imo. That means you can get some value vs his medium pairs and you make him fold a good 25% equity when he has overcards + backdoor straights.

      Hello Sikac,

      Why ain't ya CBetting the flop? We need to protect our hand from overcards rather than Check it behind and turn our hand into bluff-catcher which happened. But as you play it this way I am not getting away. Of course he is passive player but at the same time you kinda induced such a play. Bet the flop and protect your hand. :)

      Best Regards.
