      Pre: Calling is quite dicey IMO, if his PRF is 9% overall it's probably 6% max UTG if he's at all positionally aware. Essentially we need to get a Q or K to flop better than his mid pairs and then if he bets into us hope he's not got us dominated. We can't be really happy unless we flop two pair or better.

      Flop: Fine

      Turn: As played I would still give up here because he likely has us dominated. This is where our pre-flop call has got us into a nasty spot.

      River: This is quite interesting. What does he play like this? AA/KK/QQ beat us; we beat AK now. He probably doesn't do this with AQ and 88 -> JJ which are the other candidates. So if you think he does this with AK, which he probably does, you have to call and if not, then fold. As played I call but I'm not exactly thrilled about it.

      Hello staktas,

      Preflop: Against such a nit you can easily fold your hand, you rarely have him dominated and neither wont be able to overplay him postflop with such information.

      As played
      Postflop: Doesn't make sense to Call the turn vs his range, you are rather beat there. If you calling the turn then I don't get how you can ever fold the river? It just improved your hand while you now also beat AK.

      Best Regards.
