How would you proceed with this hand? Would you call, re-raise or fold ?

I don't have a lot of stats on the villain but in the small sample he seems to be tight passive so a re-raise by him has some strength or he might just be overvalueing a made hand ?

Do you normally open 4.5x from the button? As a rule I'd suggest keeping your bet sizes consistent unless you've got a massive calling station that will call regardless what size you make it.

You've not got much of a sample on villain but I think it's fair to assume that he's pretty tight. The fact that he called such a large preflop raise, then check-raised you on an action flop means that you can be pretty confident in folding the worst hand here.

Hi Spand,

No not really, in general I do a 3.5 - don't know why I did it here - perhaps just a misclick but need to take attention there.

Thank you
