JJ facing a weird turn raise


So i played a 1/3 game in the Kings casino Rozvadov. An hour at the table the following hand happend

Villian is UTG he was a tight guy i saw him maybe playing 2 or 3 hands in this hour maybe one of them was a raise.

Stack size Villian had 205 Euro i covered him

So he raised UTG to 10 two guys folded i´m in MP with :Jd :Jh so as i wrote earlier i thought he was very tight so i only called here
All the other players folds.

Flop: :9c :8d :7h

he checked, i bet half pot 12 bucks, he called

Turn: :4c

he checked again, i bet again 28 into 48, now he raised me to 75

so i was very suprised about that play

What do you think with whitch hands he makes that play?

    Considering you only have 68BB to play with, I'd 3b large PF to make stacking easy. I get that he has a tight image, but he could be just carddead. If it was his first open raise after not doing it for 3 hours, than maybe I'd think about calling to setmine.

    As played, this is likely Beluga where we're behind & I'd fold. (Sets make the most sense) There's not enough left in his stack for when our gutter comes in.

    If I only call flop because I think he’s tight I’m likely to check back flop. We are betting his hand for him if he has it and open ourselves for a CR bluff if he missed but has balls. TT is the one and only worse hand that calls and he’s never folding better so why are we betting?

    So his opening range is tight but when he checked the Flop i bet because i have a range advantage and why should i not bet? He can easily have AK or AQ here. He has not only pocket pairs here, i can have all the sets and JT here.

    I think calling is fine. I wouldn't fold and I have no idea his range, it's too hard to say given this information. He could have overcards that turned clubs, or he could just be playing an overpair in a really weird backwards way or he could have flopped a big hand and again playing it in a weird way.

    This is a weird line but it's rarely a bluff in a headsup pot, it just looks like someone trying to get tricky with a big hand to me, honestly. I'm perfectly okay calling with position and seeing the river and what he does.

    I would just call vs the smallish raise IP to outplay him on certain runouts.

    I think its important to distinguish why I'd call, I wouldnt call because of your absolute hand strength but because of his sizing and the runouts that can turn his hand into a bluff catcher. I would fold with shallower stacks and/or a larger raise. In general people dont bluff enough into uncapped ranges; I dont think hes necessarily that polarised either on this flop thats very good for your range
