      Against two reg, one very tight 11/6 and other 16/12 . I know im against a set or AK or something very strong. no bluffs. I called 3bb preflop and get a decent flop, i call a 3-bet to see a turn, turn is perfect for me and i still got nut flush draw so im happy with the hand and go allin .. well river is standard for me :f_o: I know i am beaten in a second. Is hand overall played ok or should i fold preflop or fold after the flop when tight guy 3-bet s?

      Hi Nej,

      Preflop: So which one is the very tight reg? Either way I think this should be a fold preflop versus a tight opener, especially when he opens UTG.

      Postflop: Bet/call flop is fine given the odds and combo draw that we have.

      On the turn we have an easy shove. Too bad for the river.

      But anyway, preflop just fold.

      UTG guy is tight, the one with AA :) I agree, folding pre would be best option - stay away from troubles.

      Not only stay away from troubles but we have a dominated hand against a really strong range. Not a good spot to find yourself in.
