      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows three-of-a-kind, sevens (Ah 7s)
      Hero shows (Jh Jc)

      BU wins with three-of-a-kind, sevens (Ah 7s)

      I know this was kind of braindead play (I thought for some reason he was bluffing). But when do I give up such a hand? I think on the turn, because my call on the flop indicates that I do have something. So he would probably stop bluffing on the turn.

      Many thanks in advance,

      Hello jockel80,

      Preflop: Why not 3bet here against his stealing range?

      As played
      Flop: I'd rather just let him continue with his CBets which has a lot of bluffs in his range while he could just fold them to our donk-bet. And yes, likely would as well Call the min-raise and reevaluate it on further streets.

      As played if flop was donked
      Turn: Guess if I called the flop then as well Calling the turn since it didn't change that much. Although I will keep my eye on his bet sizing on river.
      River: And I guess I would just fold it here since I don't really see many hands what we beat, only reasonable hand is like some draw Tx although even with it I am not really sure if he is betting that big for value.

      Best regards.
