Default Playing scared

Villain in this hand is unknown. He had tightish stats over a very small sample, but I've barely played an orbit with him. Anyway, I thought about capping PF but I figured a SB 3-bet of my UTG raise from someone I didn't know for sure was a complete donk ought to be respected some.

My questions are postflop anyway - should I have raised somewhere? I called the flop planning to raise the turn, but it was a really ugly turn card so I resorted to calling down. In retrospect, I don't know why I thought just calling the flop was a good plan.

If he's tight, I would not raise the turn. You are behind AA,AK,AQ, and QQ. There's really no reason to raise. It just punishes you when you're behind and will likely cause pocket pairs below queens to fold.

I'd probably play it like you did, but if you know he's tight and solid the turn looks like a fold. The K (particularly the K of hearts) is a horrible card for you.

Well, at this point consider him an unknown, not necessarily tight and solid. I was giving him a wider range on his 3-bet than just super-premium hands. That K [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] was indeed terrible though.

Yeah. It'd take a very large tight sample size for me to lay this down against Party 6max players.

raising anywhere would let a worse hand off, I like your play I would consider only folding on the river actually because with a 3 flush on board alot of QK pairs will bet because they don't want to give a heart or J a free card here.
