      villain is pretty nitty with his open raising. I can’t play well in 3bet pots with nothing so I either cbet, get called and give up or don’t cbet and give up. Or I barrel and go broke against some PP that doesn’t fold.

      Another option would be to check the flop and then I think you'd have decent fold equity betting the K on the turn. If it doesn't work, then I'd give up.

      good point! iirc i just assumed his 3bet-calling range would contain lots of Kx hands, and even if they didn't i expect him not to fold TT/JJ/QQ

      Hello DrDunne,

      Why would you go broke here? :P You have just Ace high, so I don't see any reason to go broke if we get raised. Vs a nitty guy we can assume to have a lot of PPs in his range and therefore rather Check/Fold the flop (he wont fold the PPs often enough unless we have some information on him).

      Best Regards.
