      Did I manage to lose the least amount of money here? This is a very tight regular (9/5/2) so I have him on a pretty tight range (JJ+ AQ+). Should I have folded since his check raise will usually turn over QQ+?

      If you think he can c/r there 99-JJ and/or sometimes stuff like AK it's better to get it in on the flop. You'll usually get stacked by KK+ even if you just call (except for this guy apparently he managed to extract minimum value) but you risk losing action from all worse hands if a bad turn comes.

      If he's so tight that he never c/r less than JJ there folding is fine even tho it looks very weak.

      Hope it helps.
