      Preflop: Hero is CO with A 7

      Anon table.

      Flop raise? WTF? :)
      There is no point in raising any hand here except bluff... Jx, even AJ/66, why would he raise, especially without any history/dynamics? On the other hand my click-it-back rebluff doesnt represent much either... Maybe call, and calldown?

      Why not raise if he is going to get more action from you this way ( or any aggresive oponent) so i think he have strong hand here and i would just leave hand after first raise..

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Well, with 3betting against him you don't achieve much either, you would not do that with Jx nor overpairs. :P So your play doesn't make sense either. Nor I wouldn't exclude Jx hands from his range while we don't even know him to do that? :)

      If we want to play back then rather call and reevaluate further actions on the turn whilst have also some backdoors.

      Best Regards.
