      This guy have been 3betting me alot of times. 14.8% 3bets over 143 hands 33/24/46/14.8
      So I decided to be tricky....
      I floated him and bet the turn since he checked....
      I am not suppose to fold as I am pot committed even i don't have the odds to call.

      Please advice....

      First I would fold this hand preflop. To counter-act his very aggro 3betting style you should start making yourself a polarised 4 bet range meaning that :
      - you will widen your value range here and everything you 4bet for value you will get it in with as well: maybe smth like TT+, AQ+
      -you will have a number of decent combos with which you will 4bet bluff him best to include hands with blockers: Ax, Kx
      So preflop I would either 4bet or fold but because of his larger 3 bet and because we don't have any blockers I would fodl.

      On the flop I'm inclined to just fold also because his large 3 bet preflop looks strong and because we have no real equity in the hand except for the backdoor flush draw which is ~ 5%

      +1
      T7s should be generally fold pf.
      You have enough better hands to call his 3-bet
      fold on the flop would generally be better, since you only have there backdoor flushdraw and I think he would 3-bet you a lot Ax hands and if he has there some kind of pp he would not really going to c/f turn
      Not sure that you should b/c turn. I would likely b/f to 6$ and then shove river or another option check back turn and then bet river if he checks to me third time.
