      I squeeze here but strangely enough the BU calls after also calling the CO open. He normally folds 80% to 3bets. I'm putting him on AK/AQ or some midpair. I guess he would normally 3bet his monsters.

      I got TPTK so I bet the flop. He minraises. The only thing I think he reps here is JJ, and there's only 1 combination of that. I don't think 44/55 is in his range. The only thing I beat here are FD's and KJ, but neither of these are very much represented in his range. He could be bluffing with some overcards since we have some history and I cbet the flop a lot though.

      But I decided not to overthink it and just fold since he's really tight overall even though he's not much repping on the flop. Good fold? Thank you.

      people go call/call with pocket pairs more often than they should.

      even though he didn't get the odds to setmine he's really repping a set imo. he could also have a draw sometimes but he doesn't seem aggressive/creative enough to take that line with them

      I think you don´t mostly see there QQ-AA, so that leaves JJ (unlikely, since you hold AJ) and 55/44 (sometimes 54s) that are you beat. Although min-raise looks strong I think he would sometimes bluff, sometimes raising his draws and sometimes just Jx hands. Since pot is big and you always have some fold equity I would prefer shoving my tptk

      best regards,
