      hey veriz, how did i play this hand?

      i thought because his play seemed fairly tight preflop (although over a small sample of hands) the only hands that he might have would be A7, AA, KK, 77. which means that he's likely to have a lot more dominated hands. he could easily play like that with flopped trips but he could also play like that with any overpair and maybe even middle pair. i did feel like i turned my hand into a bluff because i didn't particularly want him to call but i didn't think it was likely he had a 7. was this wrong and should i have folded to the reraise or played it the way i did? i feel like i play too nitty so im trying to change that.
