      This is my thoughts behind it, villain looks tight however I'm ahead preflop.

      When villain raises me here, my initial thought is he could do it with a FD, and AA is to strong to fold here, so decided to call, with a voice in the back of my head screaming watch out for set, this villain is rather tight and proberly wont go crazy with less than a set.

      However I shoved when he made his bet on turn, I really thought he was bluffing, and I just couldn't let go of yet a hand, which I had been doing all day....

      So this is how I htink it should have been played especially against this type of villain:

      Preflop: b/(r/s)
      Flop: b/c
      Turn: x/(crying fold)

      Am I right? if so can someone help me to start trusting the little voice in the back of my head?

      I would just bet/fold the flop here against this nit. What draws do you think this guy have in his range calling your raise from UTG? AQs or AJs at most, so these are just two combos, compared to the 9 combos of sets he has.
