      You can't call on that flop. Shove or fold, as villain is too short. I'm opting for a shove even against tight opp as he may do that with TP, QQ OESFD.

      Hi,


      Depends what you mean by "tight player", poker is all about making educated guesses. If you just randomly throw that out there because you didn't see him play much it won't help you, but if you really noticed something that made you call him tight then you can probably make assumptions about his raising range there. Like if you saw him check/call two pairs all the way he's probably so passive that he won't raise much of anything except trips+ there unless he's capable of randomly bluffing with minraises.

      If your "tight player" read was justified, you can justify bet/call check/fold or even bet/fold lines. If it's not, just shove over when in doubt and expect to show at least a small profit against a random nl2 player.

      As played I'm just plain folding on the turn.


      Hope it helps.
