      Hi!

      Stats:
      Solid villain over a small sample.

      Preflop:
      Standard 3B right? Especially since we don't know his postfloptendencies

      Flop:
      I think I have to decide right here wheter to bet twice or check/fold. With my GS and the board being pretty dry I chose to go for 2 barrels.

      Turn:
      Stick to the plan.

      Hi,

      Flop: I don't agree with your analysis. I think Flop is always a bet with it being quite dry, King high + rainbow + paired + you have a gutshot.

      Turn is dependent on his Flop range. If it's wide and I expect him to fold a ton on the Turn, Then I barrel. Remember with a half pot bet we only need him to fold ~33% of his range.

      If you think he has some AJ/AQ and perhaps some QJs/JTs/QTs or TT/JJ which he may fold to a 2nd barrel on the turn and that comprises >33% of his Flop calling range, then this would be a bet. Don't forget you could also improve to a straight on the River.

      In short, you will need to have a good idea of his PF range (look at his opening range and call vs 3bet %), as well as his Flop continuation range (fold to F cbet in 3bet pots).

      Given the info you provided, I just check/fold the Turn cos I think such tighter guys aren't floating the Flop light so I think he has KQ a lot.

      Well, does 20/16 over a small sample looks tight to you?

      it sure does. his 3bet is also 0% (which may not say anything), but at least everything seems to be pointing the fact that he's nitty.
