      Hey gao20005,

      If the guy really is that tight over a larger sample, you can easily be behind his range here. KQ would be a preflop fold, especially since you are out of position.

      The call is ok if he isn't really so tight or if he opens wider form the button. Looks as if he might just be a nit though, in which case your call is not great.

      Flop: You have a strong hand in the absolute sense, I'm not sure how often you are going to get called by worse, especially given he might be a nit. He could conceivably bet/fold AK here which would be a disaster. I would probably flat.

      Turn: As played you should continue betting for value vs AK + draws. When you get raised you are up against a set almost always and should fold. He is not doing this with AK/AA. He may be repping a narrow range, but if he really is a nit he has KK/QQ almost always maybe once in a while 33.
