      Preflop: I see he's got a narrow range pre, so I decide to call as we're a bit deep and 98s has a lot of playabillity and he doesn't make it that expensive for me to see a flop with our stack sizes.

      Postflop: Given that he's got such a narrow range, he should have a lot of hands such as: AA, KK, AK, AQ, QQ, JJ

      The only hand I'm afraid of is QQ, but the amount of combos from the other hands far outruns QQ.

      The river sucks, I don't see him ever shipping there as a bluff or even with KK, and he doesn't have AK in his range since I play back at him on the flop.

      Is the fold good or too nitty? any comment on other streets, betsizes?

      Best Regards

      Hello axelphoney,

      Folding is good, though I don't see myself raising this amount on the flop which is super-small = gives him correct odds to draw. Raise it bigger on the flop and have an easy shove on the turn. :)

      Best Regards.
