      UTG ($0.87)
      CO ($12.65) V: 32/P: 25/H: 59
      Hero ($3.05)
      SB ($7.69) V: 12/P: 4/H: 304
      BB ($3.40)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.03, 5 players) Hero is BTN K:diamond: J:heart:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.07, Hero calls $0.07, SB calls $0.06, BB calls $0.05

      Flop: 8:club: 3:club: 6:spade: ($0.28, 4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: K:club: ($0.28, 4 players)
      SB bets $0.20, 2 folds, Hero folds

      Preflop I coldcalled because the CO was really raising a lot and KJ in position is strong enough to play against him. The SB instead is really, really tight and only plays strong hands and only bets if he has something so when he donked on the turn this would be an easy fold?

      Giving the fact that the SB is so tight, it's probably best to lay it down there, because a raise would be too expensive.. but there's another side of this , you could call turn, bluff the river if club or jack hits. He just called after all and even tight players take stabs at pots every now and then.

      I might 3bet that preflop anyway, especially if he's calling 3bets out of position a lot or if i want to tell him to please stop trying to steal my buttons :p

      As played i don't mind the fold if SB is tight enough postflop to not even bet Kx there.

      Hope it helps.
