Hi brave,

It's actually not horrible vs.a tight opening range OOP, but generally yes folding is too tight here. It's tough to play this readless, and 30/20 over 11 hands is basically readless, but I would continue here with AQ. I would continue with 99+, AJs+, ATo+, KQo bare minimum without any reads.
