      Hero ?

      Villain is 75/13(8hands). So, he is unknown.
      I think I should just fold preflop VS this opponent.
      how do you play this hand postflop?

      Certainly fold pre-flop. He is nowhere near deep enough to make 97s an effective hand to 3bet OOP. At these stakes you can just 3-bet only for value OOP and your life becomes one hell of a lot easier.

      Post-flop proves why 3-bet bluffing OOP isn't fun.

      As played you could just check/fold flop tbh, it might be nitty but that's a horrible flop for you and a great one for his range (which is admittedly huge given his stats). He has a pair+ or a decent draw like every time.

      After you bet the flop and turn a flush draw I think you have to shove. He has less than - or around - a PSB left and you have decent equity against most of his hands. Still, this hand is easier to play if you just fold pre :)

      NB: my HeadAdmin status does not mean I know jack about how to correctly play poker ;)

      I dont like that 3bet. U will play oop your hand and face exact troubles like you did on turn.

      as played turn is of course check/fold.

      Hello JHTAN,

      Preflop: Against loose-mid-stacks it's just horrible to 3bet it here. :( You will rarely have any fold equity.

      As played
      Flop: I'd just Check/Fold it, that kind of board hardly hits his calling range which most likely will be towards broadways which he ain't folding, nor a draw neither a pair.

      As played
      Turn: Just Check it, doubt that we will have enough of fold equity here, neither the overall equity isn't that greatest while only 1 card to come. Hoping for free card is much safer since if he has any kind of draw/weak pair himself then we will very likely even see a free card.

      Best Regards.
