      Should I 4bet here preflop? or would it scare him afo if he is 3bet bluffing. On the flop is calling ok, or can i jam it. On the turn I don't think he would raise JJ or lower pairs, so I think I am beat, what do you think?

      Preflop: I think flatting here is fine. This guy is a huge nit.

      Flop: We can either raise or call. I prefer calling. this guy is a nit after all and we want to keep his range as wide as possible.

      Turn: Turn is pretty interesting. On one hand, the reason for slowplaying Preflop and Flop is because we feel that we don't want to isolate ourselves vs AA/KK from a nit. On the other hand, there is a very slim chance that villain has AA/KK here after checking the Turn.

      Would villain c/c the turn with AK? I'm not sure. Maybe you can bet smaller (1.60) and hopefully induce some bluff raise. With your bet size it's much tougher, I really don't see him taking this line as a bluff very often. He should be jamming the Turn too if he had something like AK, why is he min-check/raising?

      I would often advocate checking the Turn - I think betting makes little sense if we are unwilling to call a raise here.

      Pretty sick spot, I think folding is fine. If he had check/jammed it's probably closer to a call.
