      Pre Flop: (£0.75) Hero has A:spade: 7:club:

      UTG raises to £1.50, fold, Hero calls £1.50, SB calls £1.25, fold

      Flop: (£5.00, 3 players) A:club: 4:diamond: 7:heart:
      SB bets £2.50, UTG calls £2.50, Hero raises to £8.00, SB calls £5.50, fold

      River: (£48.50, 2 players) 6:heart:
      SB bets £28.00, fold

      When he bets the turn he look svery strong, 4x,77 I think. Would fold be too weak?
      River I dont see any hand that I would beat so fold?

      Fold or 3bet preflop! Your hand is totally dominated by his UTGrange and you hardly have any playability.
      But I'd lead towards folding a lot.

      As played on the flop I contemplated just calling the bet. It depends a bit on whether UTG could be capable of folding Ax, so raising can be ok.

      As played I'd fold the turn. Yes, our hand is pretty strong, but imo he's just never taking a line like this as a bluff - either he doesn't think too much at all and just folds all the air to our raise on the flop, or he is thinking and realizes he cannot represent anything by bet/calling the flop and leading again on the turn, so he's not doing it as a bluff.
      In any case we're crushed by a range of 77, 44, 74s, A4s.

      If you think he's doing this for value with something like AK/AQ sometimes you should call turn and river imo, but I prefer folding on the turn.
