      I don't know guys. I'm currently in my biggest downswing yet, so I'm getting a little bit nittier. Should we call here?

      Without to much info on the villain it is hard to say. Nitty fold, but folding in tough spots is always good for yout BR.

      Normally it would be quite standard to call a minraise with TPTK. However if villain is unknown at NL5 I believe the raises are a bit more on the value heavy side. Then villain did open 4bb from BTN which is quite weird and could tell us he has a decent hand. And lastly when he just minraises it could tell us that he at least doesn't desperately want us to fold.

      Folding might be nitty but in some cases it might be justified.

      Imo this is quite nitty, though with not many reads on your opponent it could be justified, like Ia55i says. The only hands I'm worried about here that he could have is JJ or if he is really fishy and loose, something like J10, which I think is very unlikely.

      A small note: You 3b less than 3x when OOP and I prefer to 3B bigger in this spot. You can 3B less when IP.

      As played, nitty fold but better that than calling flop and not know what to do vs a bigger bet on turn.

      Thanks for the info! How much should I bet in this spot? 4x?

      WHen you are facing a 4x open, you can stay with 3x but not less.

      Pre's okay in the SB where you 3bet mostly linear range at this stack depth, not a mistake at all guys.

      Post yeah whatever, I actually check these boards with a hand like AJ, when you bet small you can call and see what happens on the turn, but folding isn't too bad when a lot of his hands can crush you
