Question

Middle stages of a live tournament. The player under the gun raises to $900. It's folded around to Player 4, who you know plays very tight. He raises to $4,500. Folded around to you.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Fold

A tight live player will never ever reraise an under-the-gun raise with anything that you are better than coin flip against. Chances are he has aces or kings, both of which are worst-case scenarios for you. Fold; wait for a better spot.
