      maybe push prefop if you've got significant stats or VERY good reads :)

      Nice hand. There is a chance that he is holding a monster. But keep an eye on that guy and check if he is doing that more often against you. Because if he did, you sometimes have to call, to tell him: "You can´t push me around everytime. So better don´t do that with trash."

      why? we want him to do this, so we can stack them if we have an overpair, qq, kk or aa. I don't really mind giving up ak in this situation, knowing that these are the people that pay me off with aa or kk.

      But Utahmar should not become to weak on the flop by folding 7 Outers all the time against the same over and over again against the same opponent. Because if we do, villain will start doing that with even weaker hands then hours, like AQ.

      6 Outs for his 2 Overcards and 1 Out for the backdoorstraightdraw. So he very often is holding a 7 Outer here, unless our opponent has a set or KK and AA.
      Maybe here we have to discount a bit. Villain could have raised here as well with AJ+, 66+
