      I did not want to 3bet vs tight range. DO you think its ok to setmine? I would not call vs CO, but MP I thouthg is tight enought range which could pay off.

      His cbet stat is big and also his sizing is low which indicated that he can be having bluff here. So I raised him. I have weak draw which sometimes might help.

      Preflop: Calling in BB may be ok, but it is generally going to be -EV from the SB, since BB can squeeze you here some of the time.

      You need to have some sort of postflop edge on him - Either he pays you off really often when you do hit a set (implied odds), he is passive (allows you to check down and realize your showdown value) or he somehow has some other exploitable part of his game (maybe he folds too often to checkraises)
