      Hey. Despite it's fullring, it was 4handed because people were sit out.

      I would expect BU to 3bet me at least AQ+, but cannot exclude it from his calling range. Still, I cannot cbet for value, so I check/call both streets thinking he might place a position bet and on turn bet for free showdown. I don't really like this play hoping he won't 3rd barrell. What's the right line here? Thanks

      BTN has you beat on the Turn, there is virtually no hand that you beat as soon as he bets 2/3rds on the Turn

      That said you can safely fold the Turn here, he is a nit and doesn't think in lines of ''betting for free showdown'' or ''semibluffing'' -> there are no semibluffhands in his range except K:dQ
