      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB folds, BB raises to $3.25, Hero calls $2.50.

      Flop: ($6.6) 8, 9, 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $4.05, Hero calls $4.05.

      Turn: ($14.7) 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $8.40, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $14.7.

      Villain is tight 10/8, don't have a good fold BB to steal since not enough hands. I didn't want to fold on the flop on such a dry board when I expect him tto Cbet almost 100% of his range. When turn blanks I think I have a good spot for bet fold. Would a c/raise on flop be a better play? I think free cards hurt him more than me (if he 3betted with AQ/AJ and such).

      Hello,

      Preflop: I don't like the Call at all, against such a big 3bet I would more often just fold and give up, if he seems to be so tight.

      As played
      Flop: Being in 3bet pot I would just fold directly, don't really like to float against this kind of passive opponents, very hard to play such situations profitable.
      Turn: As you decided to Call the flop then you can likely bet out here also and hope to take down the pot but I don't expect to happen that so often.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
