V 59 hands - 16/13/5 AF:2, WWSF:5/7, WSD:3/4
Notes: 3bet TT

Should I call/fold/raise

He sees me something like 25/20/10

I have a somewhat good hand, but he is tight. I can
a) fold and that ok, imo
b) 3bet with blockers and semi good hand, that's ok too imo
c) call because I'm getting pretty good odds

Button ($6.42)
Hero (SB) ($19.09)
BB ($13.24)
UTG ($5)
MP ($24.84)
CO ($4.14)

Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K
1 fold, MP raises to $0.20, 2 folds

Against his small open sizing I would like to call OOP a lot. 3-Betting has merits if the BB is somebody who we'd rather not have in the pot or squeeze us out, but I wouldn't be afraid of both at 10NL much. Being OOP with a hand that will potentially be dominated against a tighter villain's continuing range would most likely get us into a troublesome postflop spot.

Great thx!

I actually folded, because it was so strongly stated in learning process that calling SB is wrong (and I did not want to 3b against guy that tight). I'm glad you are pro calling as it sounds wise thing to do here. Next time.
