      Preflop: Didn't see any point in 3b'ing since I think even 3b/fold line would still isolate me against a stronger range vs this guy. I would still only expect him to call something like:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     59.43%  43.58%  15.85% { JJ, AQs+, AQo+ }
      SB     40.57%  24.71%  15.85% { AcQc }

      Flop: Don't see any reason to raise here. I would expect this type of player to be bet/folding TP's worse than mine.

      Turn: Not sure whether to just donk the turn to avoid villain from checking behind with weaker pairs/draws or x/c to allow him to continue to bluff. I struggle playing OOP, so this is something I really need to improve.

      Since we don't know much about villains barrelling tendencies I would assume that he's just x/f'ing T and R with > TP.

      At the moment I'm thinking donking is better than x/c'ing because its possible that villain checks behind the turn with TP and SD's.

      As played...

      River: Line was bet/fold. What about my sizing, should I go smaller vs such a tight player to tempt him into calling with some weaker parts of his range like some TX or do you think that he is almost alway just fold anything > TP, so I might as well just maximize value when I do get called by betting at least 1/2 pot?

      Hi Muel,

      Preflop: I agree that there is no value in a 3-bet here and we should just call.

      Postflop: You should not check the flop to them. You have a fish in the pot and have a strong hand. Time to come out betting and hopefully get value from the fish and isolate him.

      As played I wouldn't donk into the nit. River bet size could be slightly bigger to get value from QK/QJ type hands.
