      Villain is 12/8/3.2 3bet over 109 hands.
      I would need 44% eq to shove it profitably, which I have against JJ+,AK but I wouldn't expect him to do it with JJ and I feel he would either call or shove AK directly since its tricky to play it post flop... Good fold?

      Hello Paaaaaaaaaulo,

      Why do you 3bet in first place? Usually when I plan to go for a 3bet then it means also that I plan to play for the stacks. Rather just Call and play postflop while getting the opportunity.

      Best Regards.

      Isn't calling to weak? He his a tight player, but he is raising a lot of AT-AQ and worse pp from mp2... also, I'm oop, if a K or an A comes it might be hard to play it post flop...
      Thanks Echoes88 and veriz :)

      Why should it be too weak? Do you think it's better to 3bet/Fold and not even take a look at the flop? When he could easily just 4bet against you even with worse. You are also deep so it's a perfect spot to play passively.

      Makes sense, thanks veriz. I feel I'm starting to understand which nl2/nl5 standard plays are different on higher limits.
