      Hello,

      How much does this guy folds against a 3bet?
      I think that since he looks quite tight we can just call against him.

      I think we can check on this flop.
      I really doubt that there are worse hands calling us here if we bet.

      As played, I think we can bet the turn again.

      On the river check/folding is fine.
      I can't really see any worse hands calling us here if we bet.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I think this fold is fine. Any Qx beats you. Any Jx beats you. These will both be in his 3 bet cold calling range I feel. As played you lose equity when barreling turn so you may was to consider c/c these spots in the future and controlling the pot. When the Q comes it actually makes it nicer because it becomes a much easier fold. :s_confused:
