      Hi! I think it was a good choice to call the 3bet and evaluate again in the flop, but, should I have payed a pot bet in that flop? I could smell protection in that amount, he could have any pocket pair above 99 maybe, maybe also AhKh. The guy plays 16/11 over the last 400 hands.

      Hello,

      Preflop I think flatting against the 3bet is fine against such a tight guy.

      On the flop, against his huge sizing I would fold. I doubt he bluffs with this sizing against two opponents.

      On the turn I would fold as well.

      Best,
      Plamen

      This hand is just like the previous with the AK.
      As I said in the previous thread, we should start folding hands like this against such strong lines.
      I do understand that it is hard since I did have the same problem in the beginning as well, but if you work hard you will find the right way.
