      if we put him on a range like this:
      TT+, AQ+ we can go all in

      in my opinion, on NL50 its never a mistake to go broke headsup preflop with AK with only 100 BB.
      only against rockyy players im thinking about calling / folding but against this player i go all in with AK he will sometimes fold, often show you JJ, AQs, QQ and because you take away one Ace and one King of the deck its more likely he has one of those hands then KK or AA

      I 3b it smaller IP. Just 3x the original raiser.

      vs. this nit, I think I prefer folding. I think the range you gave him is too loose, grummeler. Not everybody is going broke with that range. And this guy is really tight. I expect him to 4b QQ+, AK only.

      Moreover, this is just a standard MP vs CO. If it was blind steal, BvB or BU vs CO, we might think of loosening up a bit.

      When I'm the original raiser OOP, I'll always go broke with QQ+, AK. But when I'm the 3better, I tighten up vs some opponents.

      vs this guy, I'm only going with KK+ and maybe AKs

      I also 3bet smaller in position, $7.5 will do for me. For people who care to notice out there, it makes your bluffs cheaper.

      When that guy 4bet i think you're better off folding. It's possible that he sometimes has a worse hand, as a good player never has those 18/9 stats over 350 hands that's just calling way too much. Given that he's probably not aware of most metagame considerations unless he's just pissed of getting 3bet often, which means he likely isn't adjusting to ftp aggro games, which means until you know better by seeing a showdown with at least QQ in his 4betting range, save yourself the variance imo.

      Hope it helps.
