      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($5.36)
      BB ($5.37)
      UTG ($10)
      UTG+1 ($2.05)
      Hero ($11.40)
      BTN ($15.55)

      Dealt to Hero J:diamond: A:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, Hero calls $0.30, fold, fold, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.95) K:heart: 8:spade: J:heart:

      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $0.70, BB folds, UTG folds

      Hero shows J:diamond: A:heart:

      Hero wins $0.91

      UTG: 14/14 7 hands

      BTN 21/18, squeze 6, 717 hands

      SB: 37/17, 23 hands
      BB: 40/0 10 hands

      Is it ok to call there preflop? He looks tight, but only 7 hands. He can open small PPs, and cbet/fold them. I have position. He might have also KJ, but less chance. Problem is that he often dominates my aces. But there are two loose fish in blinds who can call and I would have position against them. Another problem is agresive btn.

      Or maybe 3bet/fold and turn it into a bluff? He would not know what to do with hands like TT, 99, maybe calls, and c/f after flop, plus of course he will fold low PPs, AQ, maybe even AK.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop: Rather just fold vs such tight opponent, he will mainly have you dominated from UTG and also you don't want to turn the pot into multiway pot which will very likely happen with those loose players behind you. If I'd play here then I'd go for 3bet.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine as long nobody shows interest into the pot and we also have backdoor.

      Best Regards.
