      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      €0.02/€0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB = (€4.26)
      BB = (€4.46)
      MP1 = (€8.72)
      MP2 (Hero) = (€8.17)
      MP3 = (€5.73)
      CO = (€7.70)
      BU = (€2.86)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 7, 7.
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to €0.20, MP3 calls €0.20, 2 folds, SB calls €0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: (€0.65) 4, 7, 9 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets €0.33, MP3 raises to €0.66, SB folds, Hero raises to €7.97, MP3 calls €4.87(All-In).

      Turn: (€14.15) T (2 players)

      River: (€14.15) 7 (2 players)

      Final Pot: €14.15.

      MP3 shows a full-house, nines full of sevens(9 9).
      Hero shows four of a kind, sevens(7 7).

      Hero wins with four of a kind, sevens(7 7).

      Of course I got mad lucky here but was that a proper approach ? I kind of felt the pocket 9s coming but he could've played 44, 79 or an overpair this way imo.

      Your question should be about whether you should raise or call here. If I see no reason for him to be raising and then folding to a 3bet, I would definitely 3bet the Flop for value. If you think he is aggressive and has a lot of bluffs, then I would call the Flop raise and check/raise the Turn or maybe check/call again to induce even further.

      Call to raise and stack off turn is also an option. Here your 3-bet is way too high. U want to scare out your opponent?

      I would usually make there small 3-bet to then shove any turn card. He is always going to stack off with 44 and I don´t want to give free cards that he might often take if I just b/c. Overbet shove seems fine, although you likely get a lot of folds against hands that aren´t two pair or sets.

      best regards,
