      Hello Sikac,

      Kind of dumb spot where but as you went for value preflop then I doubt that we gonna get it away. Another question is if we should even 3bet here vs MP range? I might even play passively and play it postflop. But of course as you do then I wouldn't fold it postflop either since we went for value with our hand. He may still even have TT/JJ in his raising range there. But to understand him more we would need more stats not just VPIP/PFR/AF. :)

      Best Regards.

      When we face of course a really nitty opponent and who usually folds to a lot 3bets and Call/Continues only with better hands. :)
