      Villain 17/11/0.3 over 140 hands

      His first 3bet.

      I do have a relatively loose imagine but still vs a nitty player like him, I can fold with no shame?

      I cant 4bet/fold due to odds when vs his top range (AK+,KK+).

      Maybe I can call for "set" mining as his 3bet is relatively small.

      Hi Evante,

      Given it's his first 3-bet in so many hands we can fold no problem. I would not 4-bet and fold when we really can't expect many bluffs. Remember that a 4-bet bluff has to work a lot (60% or so).

      As far as calling goes it is an option but I doubt it's very profitable. We still need to call 6 BB so it's not cheap to see a flop.
