      Villain is 16/12 AF=6.0 FoldtoCbet=67% (3 cases) WtSD=30% on 93 hands

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($5.35)
      Hero ($25.70)
      UTG ($15.67)
      UTG+1 ($25.92)
      UTG+2 ($26.16)
      MP1 ($5.90)
      CO ($27.70)
      BTN ($9.65)

      Dealt to Hero K:spade: A:diamond:

      UTG raises to $1, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $3.10, UTG calls $2.10

      FLOP ($6.30) 4:club: 8:heart: 3:diamond:

      Hero bets $3.50, UTG calls $3.50

      TURN ($13.30) 4:club: 8:heart: 3:diamond: 6:club:

      Hero checks, UTG bets $9.07 (AI), Hero folds

      I'm pretty helpless here on turn.. I guess sometimes this villain will have overcards in this situation, but most of the time it will be something like TT, JJ, QQ, so I check/fold turn, right?

      I don't think I 3bet this pre flop. The guy is very tight, opening from UTG. He's next to never gonna show up with a weaker A on a 3b pot.
      This guy's UTG opening range is probably something like JJ+ and AK. MAYBE TT and AQ. And he's probably folding AQ vs your 3b. Therefore, I like flatting it pre flop.

      As played, I don't cbet this flop, because mose of his range consists of overpairs and he's not folding that ever.

      Interesting idea! Well, this far I always was 3betting with AK PF, especially out of position to avoid some expensive second best hand hits. I keep in mind your point.

      to me it is still 3-bet pf, since 16/12 is likely also opening sometimes with some suited connectors and since he is middlestack he can call AQ.
      c/f there is fine, although I´d likely take stab and shove J, Q card and c/c or shove K and A cards
