      this is a similar hand to hand i posted before, where the opp was assumed to have a looser range, the conclusion there was that it would be best to 4bet PF. nl10 fr QQ BU

      since this villain has a tighter PF 3bet range i think calling is ok here rather than 4betting. what do you think? if i 4bet him i have to go broke, which i don't want against this guy.

      Hello tofu22,

      Preflop: 4betting is out of question here against such a nit. I am not even sure if we can Call that profitable here. But of course if you expect him to play back into us from the blinds with loose range then sure, flatting is an option. Usually against such nits I might even prefer just folding directly to avoid mistakes postflop like going broke with overpair.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to add, pretty standard. Most likely he was trapping with some strong overpair. We are protecting from overcards!

      Best Regards.

      Hi, tofu22!

      Your opponent is so tight you can even fold pre. 4 betting would be a bit overplayed indeed.

      Since you called, what do you think his range is and why did you bet the flop?
