      Hey.

      I thought about restealing here, because CO raised a lot - sometimes min or like hand before this big. Was it good idea to push it with 77? I generate some fold equity against his wide range. There are many overcards which I am flipping against in case he's calling.

      So how should I react to this kind of agressive players? Can I push pockets like 77+ or play tighter and follow the SHC only?

      Thank you

      Heyhello,

      I think it is fine to shove here because our opponent is quite aggressive (trusting your description of him) and he raises 8x preflop

      I dont like to call or raise small & having some behind

      I think I would 77+ and all other hands that one can resteal

      Best regards,
      Gerv
