      UTG bets $1.80, cozacu calls $1.80

      Final Pot: $8.15

      villain unknown but he was more tight than lose.

      Flop: I have no clue why i did not bet the flop, i probably though that i can only get 2str of value from a worst Ax, witch in his case it's pretty much limited to AJ,ATs and that i will on turn and river.

      Turn: I don't like his donk because I`m not sure he is going to donk AT,AJ in such a spot. I considered fold too weak and went on.

      River: Bet is very small so after i called turn i have to call river i guess.

      With not much info on the villain but that he is tight, this overall was a horrible play.

      If i consider him tight, he`s calling range of a 3bet OOP it's mostly QQ,AK,AQs,(AJs not likely) so that flop is quite bad for me.

      How would you play this hand vs a 17/12 af 3.0 (70% ft3bet) ?

      Preflop 3betting is good.

      I actually don't mind checking back the flop here. I don't think we can play comfortably bet/bet/bet so I think checking back to underrepresent the strength of our hand and to keep the pot small is good.

      As played on the flop, both turn and river are fine.

      Against a 17/12 guy I would probably not 3bet here at all since I expect his MP range to be rather strong and not to call too much OOP in this situation.
      If we wen for the 3bet tough, I would probably played the same way postflop.
