      I get this kind of hand quite frequently. Should i call and c/f flop if i dont hit a set, or is the equity wrong for this?

      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BTN): $2.00
      SB: $2.03
      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $2.36
      MP: $2.16
      CO: $3.45

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 7:spade: 7:club:

      fold, fold, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, BB raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.18, Hero ???

      Hello nathanrenard,

      You can easily Call it preflop. And should be also pretty easy to play postflop if we don't hit then just Check/Fold it. :)

      Best regards.

      12 cents to win $1.80 - Call15, which is a good rule to use in 3bet pots if the 3bet is considered a genuine value 3bet from a reasonably tight player that you can reliably put on AKo+, JJ/QQ+.

      If the 3bet is probably a re-steal and you wont continue without a set and you don't want to 4bet light to re-re-steal, you should fold. Even if you hit a 7 your opponent wont have a hand often enough to make it a profitable set mine.

      It would really depend on what the villain's 3bet from BB% is. If it is much above 5 I would probably lean to a fold, and once it gets out to 15 I would 4bet.
