      Villain plays 21 /13 , ag F 2.6, fold to 3 bet 57%, 4 bet 16 %, wtsd 25%,-183 hands
      Preflop I didnt know was it better to sqeez or call or fold ?! Cause his not folding to many 3 bets and he opens tight from utg so i decided to flat and try to hit something big.
      Flop i guess i have to call at least once with tptk.
      On a turn i think i can bet for value and protection and play B/f
      My second question is what to do on river ?! Better to play b/f to try get thin Value from KQ, QJ s type off hands or to play c/f ?

      Hi,

      Preflop you can both squeeze or call. It depends on your image as well and your plan at the table. If you won't get credit and will be called light, maybe also 4bet very weak you can 3bet/5bet AQs. I don't think most NL25 regs have that image though so calling should be better.

      Flop is a clear call imo. I can't see a raise being better, it's just too thin 3way without being last to act.

      On the turn, you can indeed bet for value but also try and think what hands can call you. SB is usually giving up after bet flop, check turn but UTG can still have KK+ when he plays like this. What worse hands in his range could he call with? Say them here.

      River is based on the turn play so first say UTG's calling range there and we can discuss river.

      KK+ is 9 combos, KQ is 6 combos, QJs is2 combos. You can't value bet when you don't even beat 50% of his range so you cannot vbet river. He has to call wider than that. You initially said he is tight so I kind of agree with the range you gave him.

      When he shows up with JTo, your stats are prob just not right. After <200 hands it's expect to not be really correct. If he opens JTo I feel AQs is a mandatory value squeeze here though.
