      Hey. Villain seemed to openraise tightly on small sample. Despite that I thought he may have called me with worse hand and 3bet better. Now, I see no hand I dominate in his coldcalling range, which could be like AJ+, TT+. So just fold it preflop?

      Theoretically speaking if his pfr was like 9-10 in this hand, is it a good line to cbet flop and then check/fold this board? I'm not sure whether to 2nd barrel cards like Q,K, since it may help his range. Thank you

      I think you might have a 3bet with 9-T PFR preflop but with 6, I am happily folding here, there are other ways to get his money

      Now the Flopplay should not really be fit/fold as the board is very dry and he is loose/passive which means his tendencies can imply peeling with A x for example

      Since there are not a lot of hands you beat on the Flop (ATs, KQs maybe?) check/folding ain't that bad
