      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $30.82
      UTG: $38.18
      Hero (MP): $25.00
      CO: $25.71
      BTN: $21.55
      SB: $56.44

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has 7:diamond: 7:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.75, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to $2.75, fold

      Villain is a good reg.
      I think he's holding a strong hand to be 3betting my MP PFR, but I don't get enough odds to setmine (call15 rule), right?

      It really depends on his tendencies. If he's a good reg I suppose he would have very well balanced ranges here.

      If he's a nit with only AA, then you can pretty much expect to stack him here almost always so the call 15 rule is more than enough to set mine.

      If he has a somewhat tight range then I suppose calling here is fine too. If he is aggro and barrel-happy then it might be kind of hard to showdown.

      I probably lean towards a fold, given starting positions and the lack of more information about his postflop tendencies. I just think it's really tough to play postflop with such a hand. Maybe 99 and TT could be more of a call due to fewer overcards.
