      What should be the correct play in these sort of situations?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 7.

      Why did you make the 3-bet with 77 here? For value or as a bluff? Did you have any reads?

      In general, you should 3-bet bigger out of the blinds because you will be OOP post-flop.

      I bet because the opponent was quite loose and I wanted to extract value from him in case I hit 3-of-a-kind or got another good flop such as OESD, etc.

      If there was only face card, I would bet/fold. However, this time there were 2 overcards giving quite a lot of possible draws and such a loose opponent wouldn't fold to a c/bet.

      So you are suggesting to 3-bet from any position but not SB or BB?

      Hello TheBrownie,

      Preflop: Don't like your 3bet at all here, rather Call it for set value. :)

      As played
      Postflop: I mean if you went for 3bet then you should also consider CBetting such a board rather than just giving it up. His range doesn't contain only from Ax hands.

      Best Regards.
