      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.49 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:diamond: , 7:diamond: . MP3 posts a blind of $0.10.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.20, 3 folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.70) 8:diamond: , 6:spade: , 9:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP2 raises to $1.00, SB folds, Hero ???

      Hero calls the minraise preflop from a player that has PFR about 30%. On flop, Hero gets nut-FD and OESD, and bets 2/3 potsize.

      Very easy push after the raise, isn't it?

      I don't like calling pf with Axs, maybe if I'm on SB.

      Against 30%pfr I still don't know if it's a good idea. If an ace hits the flop, you have no idea weather you or he's doomed. It's kind of gambling at this spot.

      Easy push against the raise.

      calling preflop is close
      however, flop ia a clear c/r against a 30 pfr guy

      With A7s you can only call for FD, 2pair, trips or TPTK if I'm right.
      I think I would have folded this preflop.

      As played I don't understand why you want to c/r the flop xylere?
      You have a monsterdraw here, these should be played as a made hand, so just 2/3potsize bet as he did.
      After the raise it's a easy push.

      you are calling for 2p+ and any solid draw.

      You can bet such a strong draw right away
      however, your position is pretty solid
      the chance that MP2 will follow with a bet is quite decent
      so there is a chance to get deadmoney from SB
      and to get in faster against MP2 (I assume he is barely folding any piece of the board)
