      -----

      UTG3 was 12/8/7 over 91.

      PREFLOP
      I get a free play. UTG3 range is often made up of low PPs/SC.

      FLOP
      I donk bet with my draw in hopes that he folds his 88-44.
      Check/call is bad and another option is to just c/f. I don't like giving away free money though.

      TURN
      When called I expect him to check back his lower pairs if he didn't fold. There is less value in betting as well.
      Vs his big bet I opted to call as I had 14 outs to improve.

      RIVER
      I opted to c/raise for value. In case he was trapping with OP.
      In retrospect, vs his big bet and the possibility of low PPs given his limp a call might not be such a bad idea either.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given you play against such a nitty players I think that you will often face 22/33 or on occasion slowplayed AA/KK (that were looking to limp/reraise).

      So we either just call or overbet shove. I don't see a middle point there.

      Hi Bogdan

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      Which option do you prefer - c/c or c/shove?

      I think it's a close spot as there are 12 combos of KK/AA and 6 combos of sets. However, it's not a given that he always calls with KK/AA. For the shove to be profitable he must call with KK/AA more than 50% of the times. Would you assume that that's the case?

      Thanks again!

      I have no doubt that KK/AA call there every time. However my doubts are with how often he limps KK/AA and then how often he just calls flop versus raising it.

      Given he is such a nit and not a fish I'd probably prefer the call without additional info.
