      -----

      UTG3 was 9/9/0 over 33 - a rock.

      Preflop: Calling IP. Don't want to 3bet his stron OR range as I would only isolate myself.

      Flop: I called on the flop as I was planning to bluff if he checks the turn + I had GS and BDFD. It would be ok if I had considered his OR range - TT+/AK - which hits this board pretty hard.

      Turn: raised the turn as a bluff. I guess I could only fold out another AK or JJ which is a small part of his range. Burning money.

      What should I do? Fold flop or call flop and fold turn?

      Fold flop for the same reason you stated, hits his range well and not enough equity for you to float.

      Hello,

      For just 30 hands I wouldn't say it's a clear rock here, but the guy looks tight so I don't mind flatting preflop.

      Just fold the flop. You should consider playing straight forward on these stakes rather than calling to bluff the turn without information.

      As played, definitely fold the turn as well. Doubt we have enough FE to justify a shove against a rather unknown opponent.

      Best,
      Plamen
