      In my opinion, your play in this situation is quite standard, considering the fact that you don't have a big sample size on your oponent.

      If you have any idea about your opp tendencies in a 3bet pot (how light can he call a 3bet pre-flop or how much he folds to a CB), you can take other actions as well (ex: fire a second barrel, if he folds very little to CB in 3bet pots and u know he can float the flop on this boards with overcards or poket pairs).

      Still, here I think you made the right move both pre and postflop. He could have some overpairs (JJ,QQ), top pairs (ATs,,KTs,QTs,JTs) or even some Ahigh flush draws that people at this limits will rarely foald to second barrels and your problem here is that u have no to little equity.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Another possibility would be just to Check/Fold right on the flop if we have some reason to expect the opponent to have rather tighter calling range. Since his calling range will be towards PPs mostly and the only hand we might sometimes against tight opponents make to fold is AK.

      Also I'd still 3bet a bit bigger 4x his raise since we are deep and that I would do also with strong hands.

      Best Regards.

      1) So if I suspect him of having a tight calling range c/f would me more preferable, whereas if I think he might be calling looser a cbet is good?

      2) If I suspect him of having a tight calling range, are there any good boards to make a cbet on without a hit ever?

      Exactly. Looser calling range may easily even have something like QJ or whatsoever which ain't gonna continue but tighter range mainly consist of strong PPs.

      2) If I suspect him of having a tight calling range, are there any good boards to make a cbet on without a hit ever?

      When we hit or have some kind of draw ourselves. :)
