      SB bets $0.80, Hero folds


      Villian looks like a nit. If he's a nit, should i be calling a 3bet IP?

      lets say he 3bets QQ+,AK. then im only calling to hit an Ace? and even when i do i do not get much of his stack? (most of the time we tie, else he stacks me with AA or he lays down KK or QQ).

      Hi straywolf

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would be very careful with such assumptions based on such a small sample. Sure he played few hands but 50 is not a big enough sample.

      We could call the dry flop and plan to take it away on turn or go to showdown.

      hmm i see.. thanks

      but if i am playing with a nit, is calling AKo IP a good strategy against him when villian 3bets?

      or should i just fold if im certain he 3bets QQ+,AK?

      or do i call like i did ?

      Depends on the nit (some still 3-bet bluff). Against most 4-betting isn't great so calling or folding are our only two options.
