      villain is a regular with TAG stats over 300 hands. Seen him many times before too. Don’t like calling and being OOP on the flop without initiative. Not sure when to 3bet here.

      I'd 3bet it :f_biggrin:

      As played I might even check/raise the turn if I think I have some fold equity :f_p:

      Fold or 3-bet preflop. U can't call that hand oop, specially in heads-up.

      If you´re not comfortable 3-betting oop then you can always call, but that case you should often either lead postflop or c/r- I would often prefer leading, since that would put them more difficult situations and if you´re leads are balanced with tp, two pair, draws and air then they can´t really always call you down or bluffraise.

      As played: Although player went pot control that means he would more often call turn than fold I think betting turn and betting especially on clubs river are more profitable than c/f. You would likely also lead with tp hands, so it is nice to balance out times when you have double gutshot draw (K, 9 would give straight)+ also J/Q might give you best hand

      best regards,
