      Hey guys!

      SB 17/14/120h nitty guy. Callopen 10% vs BTN steal.
      BB is a regular over small sample.

      Standard, I have to protect!

      I was thinking 'He could have draws and I should bet vs them and also do it for free SD'. He could have QJ, QK, AQ though which are a lot of combo's compared to the possible flushcombo's. This combined with some combo's of slowplayed sets makes it a check I guess?

      What is the bottom of our bettingrange here? QK?

      Let's say we check. What do we do on a blank river and he bets? Bluffcatch any time? Or just fold because we 'gave up turn'? Or was that just potcontrol?

      Once again try not to obsess over protecting weak hands. Sbs range crushes urs once he calls. He is tight and has few speculative calling hands from the sb. Ur turn decision to bet shuld be whether u have 50%+ equity vs his calling range. If yes u hav a valuebet. If no then u dont.

      I check turn and call blank rivers to bluffcatch vs draws. Folding on draw completing rivers.
