      Villain plays nitty 19/14 over 500h 4/4 foldtoRS

      So it's not so obv to 3bet pre cause it can't be for value but I just have to since folding is weak and calling is bad cause BB is sqzhappy. I'd fold ATo fo sure

      Normally I x/c this flop vs bad regs who can't handread very well but vs a guy who I see regularly at the limit I'll CB this board all the time.

      On the turn I guess x/c is std to x/f river? Or should we rly fold the turn? He has 2.14af . bet ip vs missed cb 1/1

      The 3b is fine even though its not clearly for value or as a bluff simply because its better than the alternatives of calling or folding.

      Given that hes nitty i dont mind folding.he has fewer speculative hands and doesnt necessarily fire the river again with them. He should have aq and 99 very often here.

      Nice hand.
