      Villain was 12/5 and 3% 3b and 3.0 post flop aggression after about 175hands. So I put him on a very tight 3bet range

      Should I have 4b to try and get SB out of the hand? I called hoping to spike TPTK or better.

      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $7.27 (145.4 bb)
      SB: $2.86 (57.2 bb)
      BB: $6.86 (137.2 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $6.27 (125.4 bb)
      MP: $7.22 (144.4 bb)
      CO: $7.62 (152.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A K
      Hero raises to $0.15, MP folds, CO raises to $0.45, BTN folds, SB calls $0.43, BB folds, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.40) 3 4 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($1.40) Q (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.65, 2 folds

      Results:
      $1.40 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: 3 4 8 Q
      SB mucked and lost (-$0.45 net)
      Hero mucked A K and won $1.34 ($0.89 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.45 net)

      I play the same and higher on turn. Nit raise against UTG. The range of 3bet is even less then 3%. I can't see value in 4betting.

      Hello,

      Against this guy I would likely to fold my AK preflop when he 3bets. I think at the best possible scenario this guy 3bets QQ+, AK (and since we are UTG it is quite possible that he 3bets only KK+), so we are getting into trouble postflop.

      As played, I would just try to check down postflop. Don't really want to bluff in this spot at all.

      Best,
      Plamen

      4-bet as a bluff with blockers wouldn't do any good here, we are not going to make him fold better hands. Calling oop is a suicide. When you hit, you have no idea whether your TP is good or not. And when you hit K/A, it's hard to get value from QQ.

      --> Fold.
