From my recent $5/$10 online limit games, I've often found myself in a headsup situation with a tight aggressive opponent on the turn when there are very few hands that I can beat. How should I be playing in these situations?
My opponent for these particular situations is a tight aggressive (not tight agg/agg, nor tight agg/passive, basically the player that gets the Eagle icon in PT). I have the most doubts againist this specific type of opponent for this situation.
The easiest to describe situation is one in which I have a hand like QQ or KK.
Let me use QQ as the example.
- Preflop I either 3 bet or raise/cap and see the flop headsup. (neither of us was in steal position; one of us opened in ~MP, and the other was in mid-late pos, in a 10 handed game)
- Flop comes something like J79 with a flush draw (I have one of that suit), 2 or 3 bets go in on the flop
- An A comes on the turn giving me 2nd nut flush draw.
Now what? My opponent has good starting hand selection. I guess that any tight agg player would play that way preflop with any PP 9 or higher, AK, or AQ (perhaps AJ, AT if he raised/called preflop). The only hand I can beat is TT for which he still has 6 outs. If I'm behind, I'm waaaaay behind.
Assume he called the last bet on the flop. There is 6-7BB in the pot.
If I'm first to act, what do I do?
If he is first and bets? if he checks?
