      Hero checks, MP checks

      Hero shows A:heart: K:spade: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 43%, Flop 2%, Turn 14%)
      MP shows J:heart: J:club: (Three of a Kind, Jacks) (Pre 57%, Flop 98%, Turn 86%)
      MP wins $5.56

      Player looks tight and when 3betting here oop, I did not like my situation and plan was to stay away from any doubtable action.

      For a 3bet pot with such tight player board looks more like dry. So I give a chance to show hand strength for villain and still keep pot small.

      When checked back I give something like AK,AQ hand that can fold on turn overbet due to flush draw presence and I hold Ah as nut flush draw.

      When called I did not want to get into any action and check river.

      Hey Ilioas,

      Usually won't be a good spot to 3bet preflop. When villain is very tight yet still folds a lot to 3bets you will isolate yourself vs a range that AKo is behind. Best option is to flat preflop.

      Given villains very tight continuing range I think the best option is to give up even when you turn a gutshot. Villain may not even have AQ in his range here, so nearly all of his range is going to call at least one bet.
