      Hi. I raised this Ax blocker, because whole table was full of nits in raise or fold mode.

      I think there are mostly pockets in his coldcalling range. I check the flop because there's no value and no reason to protect, the only draws he might have are JJ and 77. I call turn, still I don't think there are many Tx in his range - probably AT only, but if there he has tendencies calling middle aces preflop, why are his stats so nitty. But could be a variance of course. I doubt he will ever have a better fullboat on river, I raise small to induce a call from A high or maybe JJ.

      I've noticed that I get passive and pot control pot as soon as I am HU with regular or nitty player. Is it right approach? I mean they are no calling stations and I am mostly not getting more than two streets value even with TPTK. Thanks

      Well you see it the wrong way with the ''nitty'' approach, you just give them the appropriate respect because often they just have it.

      It is starting to become a problem when they realize it which is not the case on 10NL

      The rest is fine played
      Best regards,
