      Play hand
      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, 7.
      5 folds, BU calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, BB folds, BU raises to $0.14, Hero raises to $0.93 (all in), BU calls $0.78.
      Final Pot: $1.86.
      Results follow:
      Hero shows 7 7 (52% equity) :coolface:
      BU shows Q T (48% equity) :f_o:

      Villain stats in 45 hands:
      62 VPIP (45 hands)
      33 PFR (45 hands)
      30.8 3bet (13 hands)
      0 fold to 3bet (2 hands)
      75 steal (4 hands)
      67 steal CO (3 hands)
      100 steal BU (1 hand)

      A few thoughts:
      Pocket sevens are 53/47 favorite against his PFR range (His PFR = 3bet = 4bet = 5bet = ... = 9999bet). So I didn't want to play 77 postflop because I will never know if I'm still ahead when I don't hit the set. The plan was to go all in preflop with him calling. As expected he 3bets with his wide CO steal range. Maybe I should 5bet less? Or 3bet allin to add more foldequity (which is around zero anyway)?

      On the other hand:
      I'm in position to the big fish, maybe I should let him go with his steal (simply fold 77 vs his steal) and wait for a better spot?

      You are always going to play this hand postflop mostly OOP whenever he limp/calls. That said 77 is less ''worth'' qua playability than QJ for example

      Here I would get it in preflop like you did :)

      Best regards,
