      Hi! I was wondering what the right move would have been preflop. The villain is a 14/5 over 1.3k hands with a 3% total 3bet. Since he is quite tight passive, i guess his range would be top 3% QQ+, AK. He gives me around 2.85:1 pot odds and he is full stacked. Equilab tells me my odds are around 38% and since the pot odds say i need to win at least 26% of the times, is it right to call and evaluate in the flop? Or should i just have folded it away? Are my calculations correct?

      Thanks.

      Hello,

      Preflop against a player with 5% PFR who raises from UTG I would rather flat here.
      When he 4bets I think folding will be better. I think at the best scenario we are up against QQ+, AK.

      On the flop is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Thanks for the fast answer. Yeah you are right the guy is not aggressive at all, i have nothing to do against his 4 bet range, i should have folded.

      Yeah.

      We should feel more "comfortable" in folding such hands. Otherwise we are likely to lose a lot of money in spots like this postflop - we hit TPTK on Kxx and he has KK+ or so.
