      Villian is 17/11/2.0 steal from BTN 29% fold to 3-bet on BTN 50%, around 500 hands.

      Pre flop I 3-bet for value obviously
      His minraise looks kinda weird.I need around 30-35% equity for shove to be profitable. I can't call on flop cause I am commited anyway so I can only fold or shove. I haven't had any 3-bet pot with him so I don't know his tendencies there. Still he was fairly aggresive postflop in single raised pots (~30% checkraise).

      If you 3-bet that for value preflop, you can't really consider folding to that raise against a guy who's check/raising 30% over a good sample postflop, even if it's a single raised pot stat. It doesn't directly infer that he's out of line in 3bet pots postflop, but it's a pretty strong clue that he might very well be.

      Also, it's a board where he can actually have worse Qx hands given how often he's calling 3bets, as well as a number of draws. Hell if somehow he can read hands a bit, he could even put you on AK and bluff-minraise that with 55 or something.

      I'm usually not a fan of going broke in such spots against tightish players, but if there ever was one of them to whom I wouldn't fold TP2K, there he is. Even if somehow we're behind all is not lost, we have a few backdoors and two pairs/trips outs if he was trappy with KK+ for some reason.

      Hope it helps.
