      Hero checks, MP1 bets $3.36, Hero folds

      MP1 wins $4.52

      here is one the spots I have problems deciding what do to do.

      villain been playing tagishly with stats of 17/12 over 100 hands, no other stats relevant because of sample size.

      Should I avoid 3betting AKs oop against these players, it lead to problems post flop for me and his calling range should be really strong here. 3bet bigger?

      as played; check/fold flop instead of cbetting?

      you have a premium hand there and the 3 bet is correct....you could 3 bet a bit bigger but you want action. terrible flop for you, but you gotta c-bet. or else check the flop, alot of times you'll get checked back as they fear a check raise

      Hello yayasarika,

      Preflop: What's your plan with the 3bet here? Do you plan to play for the stacks? Or why do you 3bet?

      As played
      Postflop: Against rather tight player I wouldn't even CB the flop since I doubt that we even making many PPs to fold anyways. And unless he has really low fold to 3bet stat he doesn't have a very wide range here which we can make to fold with our CB.

      Best Regards.
