      Hero checks, MP2 bets T1,498, Hero???

      Villain very tight so far. Early in tourney. Stats include this hand so before this had only raised once. So he has strong range. I raised flop to get him off weaker holdings with equity, but because flop is so wet, I think maybe a tight fold to his raise on the flop is better???

      1 fold, Uncalled bet of T1,498 returned to MP2

      Total Pot: T1,945

      MP2 wins T1,945

      Against a nit it’s not even bad to fold right away pre-flop. As played the board is wet for sure and I doubt he will ever continue with worse if you check/raise and I would most likely just call to keep the pot under control and keep his range as wide as possible. Now his 3bet is very small, but I expect you need to hit at least 2 pair or sometimes even a flush to win and I would still give up. The turn is off course an easy fold.
