      Hello. MP seems tight. I'm thinking about 3bet, but I expect to get 4bet very often by QQ+, AK. There aren't many weaker hands in his range, so I cannot bluff 3bet profitably. If I 3bet to ~$0,6, I can't 3bet/fold since there is just 30% equity needed to call. 3betting small/folding isn't good option because of giving good odds.

      So should I just muck my hand? Thx

      Hey John,

      You seem to forget he might call your 3bet which makes the play +EV overall than folding (EV=0)

      So even though he is pretty tight, our hand is significantly too strong equitywise to fold it preflop

      Best regards,
      Gerv
