      It seems to me that we have really tough decision in this situation. I don't know my opponent well. His stats say that he has rather passive tendencies, but I suppose he is capable of betting river here with busted flushdraw. What he can valuebet? Sets, but he'd rather raise them on flop or turn. 99 is more likely. And trapped AA - KK.

      What is his utg range like? I guess someone with 12 pfr probably has something like 8-10% pfr,on the utg and has a pretty strong range there.

      I prefer calling pre flop and playing against a weaker range than 3betting.

      As played I would check fold turn, and I don't think he will bet any worse hands therefor bluffs with such a low af

      Preflop 3bet is way way too thin here imo. You are 3bet/folding against something like 10% opening range, right? That's not good at all.

      As played, think of what range he has postflop. Can you cbet flop for value? You are simply playing against too strong of a range with a weak postflop range (you have AK, QQ+ which becomes mediocre postflop quite often) meaning you will probably never make money here.

      His bluff range contains busted flushdraws which had overcards and often raise flop actually to get it in and his value range has you beat. It's a check/fold on the river but I think the whole plan/approach for the hand is wrong given your tight opponent and positions.
