      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players


      BTN: $3.85 (38.5 bb)
      SB: $10.05 (100.5 bb)
      BB: $5.63 (56.3 bb)
      UTG+1: $7.40 (74 bb)
      UTG+2: $8.55 (85.5 bb)
      MP1: $10.06 (100.6 bb) nit 8/5 (156h)
      MP2: $4.95 (49.5 bb)
      MP3: $19.43 (194.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $12.86 (128.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K A
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, 3 folds, MP1 calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.95) T 4 6 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.95) 5 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $1, Hero folds


      Is it correct to skip the cbet? I don't think anything in the 3b calling range of an 8/5 player will fold on this flop.
      Should I even be raising pre, or can I flat in position vs this nit?

      Hello member001,

      What's the reason in the 3bet in first place if he is a nit, he isn't really going to Call you with a lot worse. So just turning your hand into bluff by 3bet/Folding. I'd rather Call and play postflop if he has some kind of postflop leaks.

      And yes, we are skipping the CB the nit who has most of the hands what he is calling preflop -> PPs.

      Best Regards.
