      I'd raise this pre-flop, now your flop-action just screams strength!

      As played, nice sizings on flop, and turn sizing was quite ok. Although I guess 1/2 could have been better to tempt him to call.

      At first, when I looked at this hand, I didn't get it why I just limped in with 77 from CO when everyone before me folded, but now I remember: shortie BB was a shove-happy maniac (protected his blinds 2-3 rounds in a row) and SB was high on 3bets, so I decided to play more passively this hand and try to set mine --- I know, it's bad when you are forced to become more passive versus aggressive players and not the other way around, but well...

      Turn: agree, maybe I should have sized it less to give him some chance to ponder a call. After all, villain's implied odds would be in terms of mine 1/2pot size bet quite good (IP, action hero's action screaming for a strong hand etc).

      If he is a shove-maniac, then limping in is rather fine :)

      Hi,

      77 is doing fine if BB likes to shove against your opens, so I would prefer b/c that spot, rather than limping.
      Postflop I like your flop 3-bet and since you´re oop I would rather go bigger, so 3.30 is also fine

      best regards,
